The book is "Aptitute Test: Problems in Physics" by Krotov - I'm a bit geek, you know...
It used to be published by the Mir Publishers, which was a state funded company in the old times of USSR. Mir's books have a fame of being difficult - many Engineers graduated in the 60s, 70s and 80s would agree with me.
When the Soviet Union broke, Mir stopped publishing in languages other than Russian. This makes any original Mir book hard to find. Some companies, however, have bought the publishing rights. It seems that only CBS Publishers (in India) have bought Krotov's rights.
The book itself is amazingly cheap (55 rupies =2 reais, around 1 dollar), but the problem is getting it shipped to cities outside India. Amazon's website doesn't even know that the book exists, and so do most websites/bookstores I've checked. When I do find a company selling Krotov, it only ships to India. So far, only CBS itself seems to ship overseas, but they haven't answered my emails.
I guess I will have to wait a bit more for this book....
