"Full of colorful characters and the fascinating wheeling and dealings of the pawn shop Rick Harrison owns and runs with his father and his son, Licence to Pawn is a tie-in to Pawn Stars, one of the most popular shows on all of cable. It will take readers behind the scenes of Harrison's family-run pawn shop and bring its lovable cast to vivid life on the page. But it will also present Harrison's amazing personal story. While he registered a near-200 IQ at an early age, Rick developed a similarly uncanny ability to find ever-deepening trouble that nearly ruined his life. Yet the birth of his son and a reconnection with his father would bring Harrison peace at a time of desperation and, together, they would build the booming business where The Antiques Road Show meets American Chopper and millions of viewers--and potential readers--find they cannot get enough"-- Provided by publisher.
