In a Word: Yes (1969–) is a 5-CD box set released in 2002 by progressive rock band Yes, encompassing its entire career from its inception in 1969 to 2001, including material from the 1989 Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe album.

The sonically improved and more expansive successor to 1991's Yesyears, In a Word: Yes (1969–) marked the beginning of Yes's association with Rhino Records, who would go on to remaster and reissue the band's core Atlantic Records catalogue throughout 2003 and 2004, adding many of Yesyears' previously unreleased performances as bonus tracks on the individual reissues.

The 100-page booklet contains a comprehensive history of the band by journalist Chris Welch and an essay by philosopher Bill Martin. It also includes a foreword from filmmaker Cameron Crowe and testimonials from King's X frontman/bassist Doug Pinnick, Primus frontman/bassist Les Claypool, Tool drummer Danny Carey, and Phish drummer Jon Fishman.

In a Word: Yes (1969 - ) (Rhino 78186) failed to chart in the UK or US.
