Since he sold his business in 1984 he has devoted full time to his writing resulting so far in two novels, a travel memoir, two short story collections, two collections of business essays, a book of movie reviews, a child's book and a letter collection. The Wall Street Journal also published eighteen of his articles on business management and one on World War II.

He has written eleven full length and sixteen one-act stage-plays. His most recent books are a collection of five novellas entitled QUINTET in 2005, a second collection of essays on business in 2009, and a second collection of short stories in 2010. Most of his plays deal with contemporary issues, several have had readings at local libraries, churches, and in private homes. One of his full length plays was given a world premiere production by a prize winning theatre company in June 2009 in New Bedford, Mass. The author resides in mid-coast Maine with his artist wife.

Aaron's 240 page narrative, an expansion of an article series he wrote for the Manager's Journal column of The Wall Street Journal, is candid and wise, but it's also cuttingly self-critical. Perhaps that's why he coined the book's subtitle: "The story every CEO in America should tell, but won't."
