Getting Ready for Model 3 (GR4M3) by Roger Pressman is the world’s first book to focus exclusively on the Tesla Model 3. GR4M3 distills the millions of words written about Model 3 by the media into a cohesive, well-structured whole. It uses information gleaned from forums, blogs, auto magazines, websites, and social media along with significant original content to produce a discussion of Model 3 that will be of use to every person on the Model 3 reservation list and everyone else who has interest in the car. Written by someone who has actually been inside Model 3 and has taken a demonstration drive, GR4M3 allows you to better appreciate Model 3 by examining the exterior and interior of the car. It addresses some of the decisions you’ll likely face when you’re asked to configure your Model 3 and identifies the things you’ll need to do to get ready for your first battery electric vehicle. GR4M3 even provides you with a method for estimating when your car will be delivered.

"A new book, Getting Ready for Model 3: A Guide for Future Tesla Model 3 Owners by Roger Pressman, details many of the expected technical details about the car’s performance as well as considerations for keeping it charged. For those who like the minutiae of how cars function, the chapters on performance and autonomous vehicles give digestible overviews of how EV and assisted driving technologies work in general, as well as Tesla’s likely implementation. One aspect of PEVs that is often overlooked or misunderstood is the efficiency of electric motors in providing more torque at low to medium RPMs than conventional vehicles. Pressman does well in explaining the details about this feature, which alone should have prospective Model 3 owners excited… [and] Tesla’s Autopilot feature has gained praise for its role in pushing the edges of driver assistance (as well as a fair amount of notoriety), and Pressman provides an overview of the levels of autonomy and underlying technologies." - Forbes

“Pressman is uniquely qualified to educate the masses that are trembling with anticipation and ticking off days until Tesla says they can configure their Model 3… Tesla veterans will find a lot of entertaining and informed speculation about the Model 3. There’s some clever reasoning that Pressman combines with his intimate knowledge of Tesla’s engineering style to extrapolate design details… The writing style is very personal and conversational, with Pressman guiding you systematically through the development process for the Model 3… [and] charts, graphs, statistics and illustrations are used to explain nearly everything. He’s not stingy with the visual aids, using them to illustrate both technical topics and those where mere words don’t convey the idea effectively. The presentation is thorough, with lots of references and footnotes to spur further reading for those wanting an even deeper dive.” - Tesla Pittsburgh Blog

I’m new to electric vehicles. Does Getting Ready for Model 3 provide enough background material for me to understand the car?
Yes. GR4M3 makes no assumptions about your level of electric vehicle (EV) knowledge. The first chapter introduces some basics, and other chapters discuss the Tesla Model 3 and some generic issues (e.g., “range anxiety”) that apply to all battery electric vehicles.
I already own an electric vehicle (EV). Will Getting Ready for Model 3 be too elementary for me?
Not if you have interest in the Tesla Model 3. The vast majority of content in GR4M3 focuses exclusively on Model 3. If you’re an EV-sophisticate, you can skim through those topics intended for neophytes.
Can’t I get the information I need from web-based sources?
You can, but it won’t be easy, organized, or structured in a way that makes understanding easy. We suggest that you use GR4M3 to establish a base understanding of the car, using the web for late-breaking news as the months pass.
Won’t a lot of what’s written in Getting Ready for Model 3 change by the time the car goes into production?
Actually, no. The overall Model 3 architecture has been established, its major functions and features are reasonably well-defined, the things you’ll need to know about the car and the preparations required before it’s delivered won’t change, and the overarching issues associated with battery electric vehicles are well established, so the book will maintain its value before and even after the Model 3 is released for sale.
How can I get ongoing updates that about the Model 3 that keeps me abreast of the latest news after GR4M3 was published?
GR4M3 is a great foundation for understanding and learning about the Model 3. But, the world of Tesla is changing constantly. It’s likely that some information in the book will change (or even become out-of-date) as Tesla improves, iterates, revises and announces news related to the Model 3. To that end, in order to keep you up-to-date on information pertaining to the Tesla Model 3, after you place your order, you’ll receive a weekly newsletter that will keep you abreast of Tesla Model 3 news. You can also sign up for our weekly Tesla news round-up by signing up for our newsletter.

Will Getting Ready for Model 3 be too technical for me?
Not at all. Although Roger Pressman does treat a few technical subjects (e.g., range, battery capacity), he makes no assumptions about the reader’s level of knowledge and always starts with the basics, keeping things as simple as possible. Even if you don't know a volt from a watt, you'll find Getting Ready for Model 3 to be a valuable resource.
Will the book provide me with guidance for configuring my Model 3?
Yes. The book describes the likely options that will be offered for Model 3, assesses them, and makes recommendations. It also defines the criteria that will help you make the right choice.
