There's also "The Book of Why", which is a pop-sci-ish book by Pearl and Dana Mackenzie. It contained just enough math and examples to get me really excited for causal inference, so I just bought "Causal inference in statistics" to see the theory in detail. If you want to learn what causal inference is about, but don't necessarily want to wade through a textbook immediately, I highly recommend "The Book of Why".

I'm not well rounded enough to draw a clear path from where you are. For me Gelmans Data Analysis Using Regression and Multilevel/Hierarchical Models [0] drove home many, many points. More recently, I have a sense/hope that Pearl's The Book of Why [1] might take this to yet another level.
