What I like most about this book is that Ms. Barbour sounds like a real person instead of a text book writer. Yet what she’s written here is a great how-to book on freelance editing. Anyone thinking about getting into this line of work ought to read this book before getting too far into this business. She keeps the process of getting started very well organized. She tells the reader what she is going to say, says it, and then reminds the reader of what she said. The book is easy to read and well supported, too. She surprised me on a couple of occasions with advice I hadn’t thought of.
