I'm looking for some recommendations for a book on MySql that I'm gonna use with Java. I have lots of relational experience, just not with MySql. Eventually I'd like to use the embedded version.

Do you want books on MySQL specifically? Why not just research a bit on the SQL syntax somewhere online? MySQL works the same way as another SQL database would when you are connecting to it in Java.
I'd normally recommend a book, but on something so simple it might be a waste of money.

I recommend the O'reilly library for MySQL. Shorter...well written...great examples.
