Analysis of algorithms is really all math. How heavily do you want to get into the topic? The math is usually straight forward, but it uses calculus heavily. If you don't understand calculus, its going to appear opaque.

For years, Stanford University used Donald Knuth's Concrete Mathematics as a prerequisite for analysis of algorithms. Any university bookstore will have the textbook that their CS classes use for analysis of algorithms. Its a fairly advanced topic, typically junior or senior year for undergrads, or first year of grad school.

Introduction to the Design and Analysis of Algorithms this is a good one for introductory algorithms

There's a book on this by MIT Press- the authors of this book are CLR in short. Also another good book by Anany Levitin.

I am looking for a book help would help me identify the time and space complexity of an algorithm.. not for a in depth book

You do that with math. Google "big oh notation" to get started.

As Pat said, Google would be your best resource.
