I don't have time really to get into options even though I "should" to keep learning.

FlyingCircus made this comment in the discussion of Fidelity transaction fees, but I thought I would move it to a new thread because it causes me to ask a question: where would someone with no experience of options go (web site, book, etc) to learn about using options to hedge a long portfolio they do not want to sell because they don't want to pay the eye-watering capital gains? There are obviously some (many?) on this board who have developed their own methods for doing this, but there are surely others who remain on the sidelines from ignorance or lack of confidence.
