Does anyone know of a source that is equivalent to something like 'Indo-European for Dummies,' a primer of sorts. Anu makes references to it very often in his etymoloty comments; I'd like to do some preliminary study on my own.

There are plenty of intros. Here are some:

Baldi, Philip. (1983). An Introduction to the Indo-European Languages.

Beekes, Robert S. P. (1995). Comparative Indo-European Linguistics.

Mallory, J.P. (1989). In Search of the Indo-Europeans. [More archeology and anthropology.]

Mallory, J.P. (2006). The Oxford Introduction to Proto-Indo-European and the Proto-Indo-European World.

Some may be out of print and can be found used.

Ceci n'est pas un seing.
