I strongly recommend "MPLS Fundamentals" by "Luc De Ghein".

In addition to Mohammed's post i would recommend "MPLS Training Guide" by Rick Gallagher.

It is not Cisco specific so if you want Cisco specific probably not what you want but it was recommended to me (by Alcatel-Lucent guys !!) and it is a good introduction to the key concepts of MPLS.
