Well, how much in depth are you interested in getting?  I started reading
Categories for the Working Mathematician a couple of months ago, and while
it sometimes takes a bit of work it's a very good introduction.  The only
caution I have is that if you don't have that strong of a math background,
or hadn't done it in a few years (like myself), you may have to lookup a lot
of definitions in order to understand his examples.  Wikipedia usually
provides enough of a detailed description that you can get the point.
