I've always been skeptical about books published to Amazon that have no reviews, or if they have reviews, what's covered doesn't help in assessing the books true value. $30 is steep as well although i can respect the effort going into producing 168 pages of content.
If any of you buy and read it, leave your feedback, i'll be looking forward to it.

If you have Kindle - the soft version is $9.99 instead of $30. I currently have Unlimited, so can read for no cost this weekend and will leave a comment in this thread.

My car is on the cover, so it has to be good ?

His other book is on the I3 and there are a few reviews of it.

It's very technical. Interesting comparisons of the range between an "S" trim with 18 inch wheels and an "HSE" with 22 inch wheels.

I just finished reading it about 20m ago. I liked how technical it was, and really loved how detailed it was about batteries and charging principals. I wish it had a lot more specifically about the i-Pace though. The majority of the book was about EVs in general. Maybe slightly different organization, putting all the general EV stuff in Part I, how parts of the i-Pace fit the general pattern in Part II, and then how the i-Pace is unique in Part III, or something like that.

Disappointing read. I almost immediately stopped reading and started skimming. Highly technical, and unless you understand and care to learn circuit level detail of the battery, charging system, motor, etc., you will find it simply too technical for the vast majority of owners. It is 85% about EVs in general with 15% I-Pace specifics. For most, time is better spent reading this forum for practical tips!

I somewhat agree - while I can certainly benefit from the technical education, there was very little iPace content. Should be sold as a primer on EVs, not on the Jag.

He has multiple versions. One is a primer on EVs. Probably the same book mostly.

So much for him producing something based on the i-Pace which sort of confirm my suspicion.
You can probably learn more about the I-Pace by speaking with people at your local Jaguar dealer if they're friendly enough.
