When Walgreens was founded, over 100 years ago in a one thousand square foot pharmacy, no one expected we would become a brand recognized around the world. And, that's a point that is captured so well in this insightful and masterfully written book. The "Yes To" products we carry in our stores reflect what we mean by "Doing Good while Doing Good Business." Ido Leffler and Lance Kalish have certainly set a high bar, and this book is a prime example of what hard work, vision, and a "yes" attitude can do for you and your company.

This book teaches how to do well by doing good, and also how to have a bit of fun along the way!
Ido and Lance's book should really be titled Yes to Courage. The boys will not only show you how to be a better entrepreneur but leave you inspired with passion and confidence to make big and improbable things happen.
Just the right balance between informational, inspirational and cheeky - the hosts loved the chat.
