Updated

I have written a short book based on my thesis research about 'website prototypes'. While I passed my PhD, I am needing someone to review my book, to determine what is missing and/or point out redundant information. The aim of the writing is clarity so any unclear thoughts also need to be identified. I am not looking for a writer or a proofreader, this is more of a book reviewer task. Being a IT subject, it would probably be better if you have had experience in a technical field, possibly even in Human Computer Interaction (HCI), but this is not essential. The book is written in English and is currently 19411 words, with 12606 words making up the body of the book, the rest is bibliography and appendix. The book will be released in app format for iOS devices. If it is not clear what I am expecting to pay for, please ask. I will assign the job to the person who sets a reasonable price and shows that they know how to write clearly. Will also include credit for you in the book, for a job well done.
