I read Phillip Starr's book, The Making of A Butterfly, and I enjoyed it. I'll admit I was still a little hungry after finishing the book however; I guess I wanted more of a complete soup-to-nuts expose about what it is like to train under a traditional Chinese sifu than Sifu Starr's account. Any other books or blogs that might fit the bill? For the record, I've already read American Shaolin by Matthew Polly and Angry White Pajamas by Robert Tweeter.

There's the one that was made into a movie... I think it's called something like Iron and Silk.

Nah... I read Go Rin No Sho, Art of War & some others, but I honestly try to not read too many MA books unless it's a classic must have.
