REVIEW for License to Pawn

Once again, a huge thank you to Harper Collins Canada for sending me this book.

TITLE:                    License to Pawn

AUTHOR:              Rick Harrison

GENRE:                 Memoir

RATING:                4 Stars

I had never really heard of this TV show before, but since I am a lover of all things auction/flea market or pawn shop, I thought this book would be a perfect read for me and I was NOT wrong :)

One of the best things about this book is the straightforward way it is written.  No nonsense and loaded with fun and extremely entertaining stories about this pawn shop that is situated in Las Vegas and has become a very well known "landmark".

This book covers the entire pawn shop experience and is loaded with great anecdotes - some of which I found myself thinking "nah, that did not really happen did it?".  While this book has a lot of information, it is also quite entertaining and I thought the memoir does an excellent job of giving us the "inside" scoop of what it really means to run and manage a pawn shop.

Over the years, I have heard my share of stories - some of which have made my hair stick up - now, finally someone has the courage to write the truth - and I have to say, some of it really did make my hair stick up - who knew?

Great read
