Can anyone recommend any good maths books aimed at programmers? Something easy to read and covering most of the topics I will need, and which doesn''t rely on me already having a PhD in Pure Mathematics

I''d definately recommend "Mathematics for Computer Graphics Applications" - it takes you through the important stuff in pretty painless way provided you''re prepared to work through it properly (I''m from a programming/computer science background rather than a maths one).

Also on my list would be Realtime Rendering. The matrix and vector information in there is good and geared specifically towards what you need for 3D programming. That book also has tons of other useful stuff about all areas of graphics programming.
