Marion Sharpe and her mother seem an unlikely duo to be found on the wrong side of the law. Quiet and ordinary, they have led a peaceful and unremarkable life at their country home, The Franchise.

In 1973, a young filmmaker named George Lucas scribbled some notes for a far-fetched space-fantasy epic. More than 40 years and $37 billion later, Star Wars-related products outnumber human beings, a stormtrooper army spans the globe, and ´´Jediism” has become a religion in its own right. Lucas’s creation has grown into far more than a cinematic classic; it is, quite simply, one of the most lucrative, influential, and interactive franchises of all time. Yet until now the complete history of Star Wars - its influences and impact, the controversies it has spawned, its financial growth and long-term prospects - has never been told. In How Star Wars Conquered the Universe, veteran journalist Chris Taylor traces the series from the difficult birth of the original film through its sequels, the franchise’s death and rebirth, the prequels, and the preparations for a new trilogy. Taylor provides portraits of the friends, writers, artists, producers, and marketers who labored behind the scenes to turn Lucas’s idea into a legend. He also jousts with modern-day Jedi, tinkers with droid builders, and gets inside Boba Fett’s helmet, all to find out how Star Wars has attracted and inspired so many fans for so long. Since the first film’s release in 1977, Taylor shows, Star Wars has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics around the world and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike. Controversial digital upgrades and critically savaged prequels have actually made the franchise stronger than ever. Now, with a new set of savvy bosses holding the reins and Episode VII on the horizon, it looks like Star Wars is just getting started. An energetic, fast-moving account of this creative and commercial phenomenon, How Star Wars Conquered the Universe explains how a filmmaker’s fragile dream beat out ... 1. Language: English.

Buy a franchise and secure your financial future, right? There is a huge industry that is built upon you buying a franchise, paying a franchise fee and then working hard every day to keep the stream of royalties flowing. Franchisors, suppliers, distributors, franchise brokers, and others all have a vested interest in continuing the myth that opening a franchise is the easy path to success. Over the years, I have worked for franchisors, helped franchisees try to sell their businesses, and worked with buyers trying to buy new and existing franchise locations. Inside you’ll find lots of stories of the situations and events that I’ve witnessed in my years as a business broker and consultant. If you’re thinking of buying a franchise, there are dozens of guides which will help you choose the right one but very few guides that will show you the hazards. Before you invest and borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars to realize your small business dream, invest a few dollars and some time in learning what can go wrong. 1. Language: English.
