I think it is really a very nice and interesting book.
Uri was an outstanding composer, he worked out his problems very carefully, he loved complex renderings, paradoxical ideas, richness of play, well organised sets of variations. He had some historical achievements like his famous Lacny 4x2 in selfmate.
Kjell’s comments make the problems clear and easy to understand.
There is a useful and complete index of themes and definitions.
The solutions are written with international signs in a clear layout with one problem per page.

I just received mine today (straight from Slovakia).

What a pleasure to hold it!
Thank you Kjell! Thank you Raffi! Thank you Peter!

It was a piece of work, and it was worth the efforts!
