In Progress

Book - Our Greatest Challenge

I need help reviewing a book manuscript for typos, spelling mistakes or tense consistency. The book has some 57,500 words, is 187 pages long on a 6”x9” format and has some 25 graphs and 22 tables.

The formatting is almost done and I am a bit reluctant to incorporate drastic changes that might require moving graphs or shifting text to other chapters to maintain the chapters starting on odd pages.

I have a limited budget and would like the review to be done in a week, but I will rather pay a bit more or wait a bit than have superficial work done. I am attaching the introduction of the book for you to assess the amount of work that might be necessary. I like my scientific style with a dose of humor. I will appreciate you submitting your bid together with your time estimate for completion and your suggestions for only one single page of the attached file, so that I can assess your capabilities. Please make the changes in Word, using the track changes feature.

Quite frankly, I think - based on the first page - that it needs more than "superficial work". You can see what I mean from my corrections. I've uploaded the tracked changes to my portfolio.
