"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.

Fascinating look into an unusual family. Gave me more insight into how this guy knows as much as he does. Also, a severe indictment of the schools in his area. This guy is clearly very bright but dropped out because no one understood what was going on with him. Even more interesting if you are hooked on the Pawn Stars show!

I haven't finished this yet, but what I've read, I've really enjoyed. Some of the stories Rick tells are too crazy to be true, but they have happened. If you enjoy the show, you'll probably love the book.
