Rocket-Mass-Heater-Builder-Guide is one and another is Rocket Mass Heaters

These are the two leading books on the subject. The first one is the most up to date and has more technical info building mainly with new materials and addresses codes and regulations  . The second one is more simple and laid back for the tinkerer who likes to build from reclaimed or recycled materials and freedom of expression. Depending upon the type of person you are will attract you to either one....or both.
Once you fill your brain with more info than you can handle, do a few test builds to get the gist of what all the fuss is about with RMH's and come back and ask questions about what you don't understand and what you've learned. Also cruise the RMH forum here as a lot of questions you may have probably already been asked and answered.
Good luck on your journey!

I bought the first book and am going thru it

Might get the other
 
And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards
