I'm an Arduino layman, but eager to get started.
Are there any good Books available with the basics in them?

www.arduino.cc -- check out the playground.

has reference, examples, wiring diagrams, and sample projects - not to mention the vast support forums. Funny that an open source community developed a dev tool and also created tonnes of support matterial.

I agree that the web is a wonderful gateway of resources for the Arduino. It is where you will get most of your info once you start. That aside, I have found two books that I have enjoyed about the subject.

When I was first getting started and knew nothing about the subject, Massimo Banzi's "Getting started with Arduino" encouraged me to dig deeper. This book is very inexpensive.

Once, I started working with Arduino, I found Tom Igoe's "Making Things Talk" to be an extremely useful book.

I hope you pursue learning and experimenting with the Arduino it is wonderful fun.
