An e-book on how to buy auto insurance needs to be proofread. The book has 40,000 characters. Here is the expectation.

- It's an ebook about American auto insurance and targeted at Japanese living in the US.
- At this point, I need 8 to 10 hours of proofreading, i.e. I don't expect a perfectly proofread article as an end result.
- I want you to go over the material, correct te-ni-wo-ha, and edit hard-to-follow sentences. Suggestions on flow/structure would be appreciated as a separate comment (you do not have to directly edit it in the file).
- I don't want you to spend too much time to check on terminologies (many of those are left in Katakana (English) and don't want them to be converted to Japanese words. They are left in Katakana (English) intentionally, since those are the words the readers need to be familiar with. Rather my focus is on the understandability and easiness to read.
