I think that the best single source of Aikido information is a book called : Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere by Westbrook and Ratti.

Try to get the Hardcover version if you can. This really is a fantastic reference, beautifully illustrated.

Something for expect and beginner.

Highly recommended.

Dynamic Sphere is a great book; we've used it in our hapkido class. Also, a new work out that is valuable is "Aikido Exercises for Teaching and Training? by C.M. Shifflett.

+1 on the CM Shifflett book. It was a fave back when I studied Aikido.
