    When it comes to electronics, I'm a complete idiot. Can someone direct me to
    a website that covers introductory issues or even recommend a good
    introductory book. I'd like to build my own circuits but before I do, I need
    to understand how things work -resistors, transistors, etc.

    Thanks for your help.

    I would recommend "Basic Electronics" by Bernard Grob. It is a bit pricey
    on Amazon.com but perhaps it is available in your local library or if not,
    perhaps they could order it for you. I read it when I was about 12 and it
    made everything (with the possible exception of electromagnetics) easy to
    understand.
