Title. I am looking for intuitive, light introductions. Evan Chen's Napkin isn't cutting it this time.

Fulton and Harris is the standard reference. However, if you're looking for something more grounded I'd personally recommend steinberg's "Representation theory of finite groups : an introductory approach." You only need to know some basic linear algebra to get started.

I’ve recently been working through Vinberg’s “Linear Representations of Groups”. His book has a wonderful “chapter 0” where he introduces the key ideas and emphasizes their power, and he loves the geometric. He also later talks about Laplace’s spherical functions from the representation-theoretic viewpoint. That said, it still takes some work to master his text, and he has some hard exercises along with some easy ones.
