Book Description

1 April 2012 Living & Working in London
London is one of the world s great cities, but it can be a confusing and daunting place for newcomers it isn t only vast and labyrinthine, but also chaotic. However, fear not, whether you re already living or working in London or just thinking about it this book is just what you need. Forget about those glossy guide books, excellent though they are for tourists; Living and Working in London was written especially with you in mind and is worth its weight in whelks. This 6th edition has been completely updated and revised. General information isn t difficult to find in the UK; however, reliable and up-to-date information specifically intended for newcomers living or working in London isn t easy to find. Our aim in publishing this book was to help fill this void and provide the practical information necessary for a relatively trouble-free life. You may have visited London as a tourist, but living and working there s a different matter altogether. Adjusting to a different environment and culture and making a home in any foreign city can be a traumatic and stressful experience, and London is no exception. Living and Working in London is a comprehensive handbook on a wide range of everyday subjects and represents the most up-to-date source of general information available to foreigners in London. It isn t, however, simply a monologue of dry facts and figures, but a practical and entertaining look at life in London. (Our sister publication, Living and Working in Britain, contains comprehensive information regarding a wealth of subjects applicable both to London and the rest of the UK.) Adapting to life in London is a continuous process and this book will reduce your novice phase, minimise the frustrations and help you make informed decisions and calculated judgements, instead of uneducated guesses and costly mistakes. Most important of all, it will help save you time, trouble, and money and repay your investment many times over. Although you may find some of the information a bit daunting, don t be discouraged most problems occur only once and fade into insignificance after a short period (as you face the next half dozen!). However, although expatriate Londoners may occasionally complain about the government, traffic wardens and the weather, most love living there. A period spent in London is a wonderful way to enrich your life, broaden your horizons, make friends and, with any luck (and some hard work), make your fortune. We trust this book will help you avoid the pitfalls of life in London and smooth your way to a happy and rewarding future in your new home.
