Never been in a kayak before

I have never been in a Kayak before but right now I am having this uncontrolable urge to build one before next spring. I live in Indiana so I am no where near the ocean. All we have here are rivers and reserviors and some lakes. My wife has been in a kayak and say's they are wicked! They will turn over on you without warning, ect,ect,ect...... What I would like to know is how true this might be and if so how long does it take to get the hang of it? I mentioned to her that they have kayaks with outriggers on them and she liked that idea. Just wondered what others think about their beginnings in a kayak. Thanks, Mike
