Re: What's the best book to understand 4E's monster building philosophies
Monster Vault! (either of them). DMG1 has the explanation of the types and such, but how that stuff was applied changed over time. Monster Manual 3 brought about some big changes in math, but by the time that was printed a lot of your iconic D&D monsters had been done so the stuff in there is ... weird. MV goes back and retrofits a LOT of classic MM1 stuff with the things they had learned in the intervening years.
