Kevin Gurney has on-line a preliminary draft of his book, An Introduction to
Neural Networks, at 
http://www.shef.ac.uk/psychology/gurney/notes/index.html The book is now in
print and is one of the better general-purpose introductory textbooks on
NNs. Here is the table of contents from the on-line version: 

1. Computers and Symbols versus Nets and Neurons 
2. TLUs and vectors - simple learning rules 
3. The delta rule 
4. Multilayer nets and backpropagation 
5. Associative memories - the Hopfield net 
6. Hopfield nets (contd.) 
7. Kohonen nets 
8. Alternative node types 
9. Cubic nodes (contd.) and Reward Penalty training 
10. Drawing things together - some perspectives 

Another on-line book by Ben Kröse and Patrick van der Smagt, also called An
