I've got about four books on MySQL, including one on using MySQL for 
web development, but the book I would recommend for both your needs is 
'MySQL' by Paul DuBois. The book is a little out of date and you will 
need to check the on line manual to see what has changed, especially 
for SQL. But it covers the basics of SQL and performance better than 
anything else. Almost all your beginning questions will be answered 

For a more advanced treatment of performance, Jeremy's book sounds 
like the best bet, when it comes out.
