Firstly, why do you choose MySQL, specifically? PostgreSQL is free, 
comes with Linux, has a free online book, and, is more ANSI-SQL-92 

Apart from that, any SQL book of value should do. There is a Teach 
Yourself SQL in 21 days book, and, I believe, a Teach Yourself SQL in 24 
hours book. They should do the job.

It depends on what you want to do, and, how far you want to go.

There are probably free online tutorials.

Have you tried doing a google search on "SQL tutorial", or, "mysql 
tutorial"? If you get succesful results, you might find them cheaper, 
and, possibly, just as good.
