The images come from a variety of sources and include both photos and illustrations. They are used with each chapter of the book to highlight some aspect of that chapter's subject. Cara Ellison and Rumble Press have created photo boards of the images in the book. The boards contain every image in the book along with descriptions of what each image is and why it was chosen.
For example, the image of the Dempsey and Firpo boxing match above comes from Chapter 27 of the book, titled "Battle of the Notes -- FBI versus Rex Shelby!" Here is the brief description in the photo boards associated with that image:
"While in the witness chair, Enron Broadband defendant, Rex Shelby, was questioned by lead federal prosecutor, Ben Campbell, about the accuracy of notes written by the FBI. It was like a championship boxing match in which the FBI did not fare well."
The photo boards are a handy preview and complement to the book. Check out the boards on Flickr and Pinterest. A photo board will also be available soon on Learnist.
Enjoy the boards and let us know what you think!
