Living and working in France David Hampshire., 12 July 2010
I first came across David Hampshire's 'Living and Working in France' when browsing the 50p shelves of a local second hand book shop and took it home with me as just a cheap dissinterested 'look see' purchase. On getting to grips with the book properly, I soon realized I had stumbled across a veritable treasure trove of information. It has to be the most comprehensive book of it's type available. However, the edition I had picked up was in fact ten years old, and liking what I had seen, decided to cough-up the full price for the latest edition. I now have that new edition on my desk, but sadly, it is no longer the 'complete package' that went before. Gone are the exceedingly useful 'utilities' section [water, electric & gas ] and with it some of it's fundamental usefulness. Apparently, the 'utilities' section has been moved to another of David Hampshires books [another fifteen quid, ah hum ] which leaves me a little dissatisfied.
