Seeking an experienced editor to review, edit and re-review manuscript with edits implemented. Does not require technical topic-specific knowledge of editor. Prefer US-based, or someone very familiar with US marketplace since book references domestic markets and business landscape.

Seeking an experienced editor with experience in non-fiction business books to help define voice, streamline content (probably trimming significantly) content in book to flow well and deliver information with authority, while still being easy to read. References are provided, so "fact-check" is not required. Content is in chapters, however they are not yet numbered. TOC, final chapter order will be finalized after first edit.

Please state:
- fee
- date you can start
- how long it will take for each review (in days)
- terms.
