Hi,
The books description says it’s a gentle introduction to maths for programmers but I guess it assumes a certain level? I did maths (UK for Math) up to O Level, is that enough?

Willy,

I've answered this question a few different ways, but maybe a simple answer is that I've designed this book to be as approachable as possible.  You basically need to have some comfort working with equations, variables, and functions and you should be able to get off the ground.  Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions as you get started!

-Paul

...and succeeded. It is easy to understand as long as you ahve some basic mathematical knowledge.
