I am a military spouse and will be moving to Britain soon. I was hoping this book would have more "meat" on living in England, what to expect, things that would be useful to know, their culture,etc... This book is great if you are moving to Britain and need to learn about medical insurance, doctors, vets, taxes, dentists, immigration, postal services, education, etc...

Many books about moving to Britain are written for people who are moving there, short term: Military families, people who're being transferred by their companies, etc.

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.

Living and Working in Britain: A Survival Handbook I found this to be an excellent starter book on relocating to England. It will help lay the foundation of knowledge, on which you can expand; by further, more focused study to find out what you need to know and is a move to Great Britain worth pursuing. It is easy to understand and has a very good writing style. It will more than get you started. A good read, a good buy, a good book!
