Elements of the Theory of Functions and Functional Analysis

I'm thinking about getting this book. I'm a physics major, and I think the only analysis course I'm required to take later as a prerequisite for graduate courses is Introduction to Complex Analysis. So far, I've taken Cal I-III and Linear Algebra. Differential Equations will probably be in the fall. Do I have enough knowledge so far to try to tackle this book for fun? Because I'm required to take so many courses for my physics major, I only need one more to get a math minor, which is what I'm doing.
