Data Flair has a guide to five books to help you learn Apache Kafka:

The book “Kafka: The Definitive Guide” is written by engineers from Confluent andLinkedIn who are responsible for developing Kafka.

They explain how to deploy production Kafka clusters, write reliable event-driven microservices, and build scalable stream-processing applications with this platform. It contains detailed examples as well. Through this including the replication protocol, you’ll learn Kafka’s design principles, reliability guarantees, key APIs, and architecture details, the controller, and the storage layer. However, even if you are new to Apache Kafka as the application architect, developer, or production engineer, this practical guide shows you how to use this open source streaming platform to handle real-time data feeds.

I haven’t read any of them yet, but a couple look interesting enough to add to my to-read list.
