This book is written as a business narrative. It has an interesting plot and a great way to put business ideas than writing a traditional nonfiction book. This book I finished in a day. It is short and an easy read. It is enjoyable and well written. It explains six principles that not only can be applied in business but also in life. I received this book from iRead Book Tours for an honest review.

I enjoyed the telling of Laura's story and all she went through in life, from starting out prospecting with her father to being taken to a large city to grow up with an uncle. I thought the story was well written and it did keep me interested as it went along. What you do not realize is that while reading this book you are also learning a lesson in business. Another thing that I liked abou tthis book it that it had such a strong female character that gets what she wants in business and life. This book was easy to read and short enough that you can read it just a day or two. The author not only gives you a good story but a lesson in business.

A fascinating mechanism is used by author Ken Dunn in his book, The Greatest Prospector in the World: A Business Parable. Instead of writing his thoughts in narrative nonfiction, Ken takes the story and spins it into a well-written, lovely story of historical fiction using Laura Dunagan and her Uncle Joe to share with his readers the six keys of business success. Although Laura isn't happy leaving Alaska and beginning a life with Uncle Joe in Chicago, once she begins learning from him and understands what a smart business man he is her attitude changes. Step by patient step, Uncle Joe unfurls for Laura an education not to be found within the hallowed halls of any institution of learning. The skills taught by generations of Laura's family are those necessary to become successful in business. Ken Dunn could have written another nonfiction book filled with all kinds of bells and whistles on the topic of building a business, marketing your products, advertising and more. Likely, his book would lose your attention about midway through if you made it that far. In The Greatest Prospector in the World, Dunn chooses a clever method of teaching the tools of business marketing through historical fiction. Although well-written and skillfully told, there were times in reading the book I felt as if I were reading something geared toward middle schoolers or maybe high school students. And this may very well have been the author's intention. I cannot fault him for something I'm not privy to or clear on. So, I recommend this book to anyone just setting up a new business or starting a new sales job or marketing position. The tools you need are laid out clearly within the pages of Dunn's book. No reason I can think of to hesitate purchasing this book. FTC Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via iRead Book tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. Opinions expressed are mine.

What an amazing book! Who knew that a fiction book could bring such life to marketing lessons? If you are in the MLM business and want a great read, I would definitely recommend this book.
