There is a new book out just last month by Englishman Graham Frankel called PING -A Personal Perspective on Table Tennis. 
I do not have my copy yet but I am really looking forward to reading it.Graham has been involved in table tennis for quite a few years and has opinions on most thing in table tennis. Those involved in English Table Tennis will be aware of Graham and his love of the game.
I will post my review when I have read it and hope others will do the same.

Just ordered a copy. (Hopefully this will be better than that weird book about the guy who goes to China, drinks a load of bottled sweat and then plays with a six-faced racket.;)

Ha ha I liked that book. A little far fetched but good fun for a TT book.

Just finished the book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really like the way the author intertwined his own life with major events in World Table Tennis.Some very thought provoking discussions around rubber and also the balls. I feel the author really doesn't like the "funny" rubbers which I must say I agreee with. My only critiscism is that it was too short! i would rather have read this for another few nights. Book 2 soon please Mr Frankel?
