Book Editing

Hi, I'm Paul, I'm 33 year old Irish guy, living in London, working in Finance.

I've written a non-fiction book on Career Paths which I'm hoping to self-publish in Feb.

It's approx. 80,000 words, I've attached one of Chapters so you can see the style, quality etc.

I'm happy with the structure, am just looking for an Editor to improve the language and writing style so that it reads like a polished book, and pick up on any mistakes.
