Some good information, but missing a lot of key tips Jul 29, 2008
I moved to London 7 months ago to continue my job with their London office and read this book before I moved. Although there is some helpful information about making the move, I feel that I could write an entire book with all the stuff this one left out. When browsing through the areas to live, they leave out many key areas and have some in there I still haven't heard of after living here. One big thing they left out was that most flats to rent in this city are either semi- or fully-furnished. This would've been great information to have before my husband and I moved all our stuff over here for a 2-year stint. They also have no helpful information on getting a work permit or UK visa. It really seems as though the writer of the book has not actually moved to London for work, but instead only done some research. There are so many other tips that I've learned along the way that I wish someone had told me beforehand that were completely left out of the book. I found at least 50% of the information completely irrelevant or unhelpful.
Potential Expatriate to London Apr 27, 2008
Truly a well-written and informative piece of work that is helping to make the initial preparation for my potential relocation to London through a job transfer a little less nervous. I truly appreciate the breakdown of each borough as well as the additional resources (websites, contact info, maps) that aid in providing more detailed information. This is definately a great buy. This edition may be a little outdated in certain areas as there have been so many changes regarding the housing market and the regeneration of certain areas which I witnessed on my last trip to London in Sept. 2007. So I can't wait for the new edition to come out. Truly worth it though for the other information that would pretty much stay the same.
