I love O'Reilly books and rarely look beyond them.  (I may be biased. :)

I loved _MySQL Cookbook_, which is huge (1024 pages), but getting old 
(2002).  Ah, there is a newer second edition (2006):

_Managing and Using MySQL_ was OK, but I personally got more out of the 
cookbook.  (I may be biased. :)

There is also _MySQL in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition_ and _Learning MySQL, 
First Edition_ if you like those series, but I don't have either of them.

Bottom line, you said you liked the DNS cookbook, so grab the MySQL 
cookbook to start with...
