Re: maths skills required
Hi there,

Thanks for your question - and sorry for the late reply, we were both on vacation the past week.

We focus a lot on the practical concepts and not on theory, so you should not encounter any math that is not explained in relevant details. If you do, please let us know here and we'll update the book.
