K said Great book. Worthwhile read.. I was almost swayed by the low review that this book received, but I'm glad I picked up a copy and made a decision for myself.

In 2012, one of his four customized Leica cameras sold at auction for nearly $2 million. A Speed Graphic was used to take Sam Shere's widely published photograph of the 1937 Hindenburg disaster, "the world's most famous news photograph ever taken." With few shots left and no time to get the camera to his eye, he shot his Pulitzer Prize-winning image "literally from the hip. It was over so fast there was nothing else to do."

Its indestructibility, reliability and interchangeable lenses made it a favored workhorse of photojournalists.
