Heathrow to Bath for two faster than a speeding bullet (train)?

What's the best (fast, not necessarily cheap) way for two people to get from London/Heathrow to Bath mid-day on a Saturday? Our schedule + National Express train schedule = 7+ hours from touchdown to Bath arrival - too long after 9+ hours on a plane! There seem to be numerous "transfer service" outfits for around 120 pounds/carload, expensive enough to make us think more than twice. Is there any middle ground, something equivalent to Airport express (12 person vans w/reservations) in the US? If not, any recommendations for the above-mentioned transfer services?

What are the best London street maps?

I'm going to live in London for a year, and want to know where I'm going. Which street maps should I purchase? I'll probably end up getting two: a smaller one for quick reference, and a more comprehensive one to keep at home. When I was a student in Paris, everyone carried the Atlas Routier Plan de Paris — what's the equivalent?

books about london?

I'm going to London for a week soon - do you know of any books/stories that would offer insight/history/accounts etc. to help me better appreciate my experience there.

I read Washington Irving's "Alhambra" before visiting there and it really "brought the place alive" thank you for any suggestions!
