Now, for the first time this hidden jewel of chess literature is being presented to the worldwide chess audience in all its excellence. The structure of the book was a revolutionary one at the time of its first release, and influenced the production of many instructive chess volumes.
"Let Me Ask You, Do You Know ...?" is a highly entertaining mix of tricky endgame puzzles and irreverent witty humor; once the most popular radio host and DJ in former Yugoslavia, Karaklaji c uses his wit and charm to play his audience like a fiddle. The challenges often appear deceptively simple at first, but as the plot thickens the readers are put on their heels, constantly guessing whether they are on the right track, as the author keeps serving red herrings on a black-and-white board with gusto. The exercises feel refreshingly different, having a delicate balance of difficulty and educational value, while the prose is thought-provoking and thoroughly enjoyable at all times, utterly dispelling the myth that chess is inaccessible and dull.
