I like ‘The Root of Chinese Qigong ’ by Jwing Ming Jang, which gives a good overview and teaches you a lot of good tools. If you only come away with one technique make it the running of the microcosmic orbit, and cultivating qi, but nothing beats an in person class if you can find one.
Robert Bruce is probably the most well know Western expert on energy work that is not path specific. His book Energy Work is good and his kundalini course here at BALG has had great reviews.
