If you did want to delve into Chinese magic, especially chinese alchemy, let me recomend a book: Taoist Yoga by Lu K'uan Yu.
My friend Matt (Illustrator of TSS, Expert Sorcerer, Kung-Fu Master, Tattoo Artist, and Philadelphia Flaneur) gave this book to me a while ago when I first started studying the works of Mantak Chia. I have't picked it up until now, but let me just say that I wish I had picked it up immediately.
Taoist Yoga is exactly the kind of book that I love: accessible to readers unfamiliar with the subject matter, yet filled with more information than ten other books combined. If you are interested in Taoist immortality and internal alchemy. This is the place to begin.
