    This is an excellent story of corporate responsibility, told with feeling from a caring father and businessman. It is both a story and a valuable learning tool. It is not long, but it contains a lot of good sense, not only for hiring the disabled, but also for the successful management of any team. It is impressive to read about the determination, the hope, the involved process, the many serendipitous meetings with just the people needed, and the worthwhile accomplishments achieved.

    No Greatness Without Goodness is a really heart-warming book. The author, who also has a high position in the corporation of Walgreens, is a great role model for all corporate personnel. Randy Lewis has had much career success and he owes it to the lessons he has learned from his son. His son is autistic and it was the love for his son that he decided to do something different: he was going to turn Walgreens into a place that people with disabilities could thrive. One thing that his son taught him was that everyone despite whether they had a disability or not had a contribution to make. What I really liked about this book was the authors attitude that those in leadership have a responsibility to make life better for the world even those with disabilities. The author is a truly courageous man to take such a stand in this world where those with disabilities are often mocked, bullied, and viewed down on. You hear and see this everyday, especially in the news. It happens everywhere: schools, churches, the workplace, neighborhoods, and even in families. However, the authors attitude about people with disabilities is so refreshing and an attitude that I believe should be the norm in society. I also have to agree with the authors motto which basically means that if you are in power, you should use it for the good and Randy Lewis is doing just that. I recommend that everyone in a leadership position read this book as well as all teachers, school officials, and people who know someone with a disability. This is a truly remarkable read that has a message that needs to be told.

    Randy Lewis is a retired Walgreens Senior Vice President and was over their Distribution Centers. But more important is his role as father to Austin who has Autism. Through his life with Austin he realized that their weren't jobs available for those with disabilities and this concerned him. How would his son ever have a chance to live a somewhat normal life without this opportunity? From struggling with these questions and thoughts for his son he came up with the idea to build a distribution center that was staffed with one third disabled workers.

    This book is fabulous. I read it in one day. I loved hearing his story and how he overcame obstacles to make it happen. Not only did Walgreens change the way they hire and create the goal to have 20% of their entire workforce, even in the stores, disabled; but he also helped inspire other companies to do the same. What a great story of a father's love and determination to make the world a better place for his son.
