For someone who already knows micro and macro economics, are there any good books to understand chaos theory in economics and mathematical economics in general?

Some older references, from the first wave of fascination with the subject:

1) Baumol, W. J., & Benhabib, J. (1989). Chaos: significance, mechanism, and economic applications. The journal of economic perspectives, 77-105.

A general introductory overview.

2) Lorenz, H. W. (1993). Nonlinear dynamical economics and chaotic motion (Vol. 334). Berlin: Springer.

Theoretical treatment

3) Brock, W. A., Hsieh, D. A., & LeBaron, B. (1991). Nonlinear dynamics, chaos, and instability.

Applied econometrics for the detection of chaotic behavior in economic time-series, from two of the most known researchers in the field (W. Brock and B. LeBaron)/
