Project Description

Project Summary:
I need my first book ([url removed, login to view] words now) edited, proofread, and formatted completely. This means a complete grammar check as well as checking if the book is understandable and logically consistent (and editing it until it is, i. e. explanations may have to be reworked or added here and there). The book is about Linux, so it would be good if you have a technical background or published technical books before.

More Details:
An example or two of your past published work is much appreciated as well as any credentials.

The book is fully written now. It just needs to be worked through to check for logical issues, inconsistencies, grammatical issues, formatting, as well as for polishing the intros and conclusions to get them perfect. Certain sections may have to be reworked or moved around a bit to optimize the readers flow. The book also contains an alphabetical index which needs to be improved too (and should get a second alphabetical index too).

Now it is written in an Openoffice Word document, which can be edited with Microsoft Word or Openofice. The formatting is ok now, but it should all become more consistent and the result should look like a professional book (not like a word document), thus needs to publishing and formatting skills (or tools).

Please be a native English speaker.
