Those books focus on things like storing the belongings you leave behind, and generally treating your time in the UK as a very extended holiday... even if it'll be several years. They only briefly cover the things that the military and/or corporate offices may take care of, including work papers, initial housing, taxes, etc.
'Living and Working in Britain' includes some of that information, but it's even more useful for people like my husband and me: We plan to move to the UK, permanently. This book attempts to untangle the most confusing issues while reminding readers of the little things that you may not even think of.
I'm looking forward to the new edition of this book, but -- in the meantime -- this is definitely the most comprehensive book I've seen for someone planning a permanent move to Britain.
Even if you'll be there for just a couple of years, I think you'll benefit from the detailed coverage of everyday life in Britain.
This book is definitely a must-read for anyone moving to the UK, short- or long-term.

Information was good but it is 15 years out of date which makes housing & employment information worthless. Need an update.Published on May 8, 2014 by Judith A. Webster
Very comprehensive book, that helps you better understand what to expect when you move to a new country. Covers a diverse series of themes.Published on May 15, 2008 by Peter Walbaum Mitchell
