Howard Bragman is the real deal… a public relations icon with contacts and connections that mean more than just fodder for a POWER PLAYERS list. It is rare in our industry to have someone shoot straight and really get down to facts in a business where vapor rules, but Howard somehow manages to serve his clients while also making sure the media hounds get what they need too. I have rarely interviewed anyone in PR who is more respected, more powerful or better able to serve up a juicy soundbite. EVERYONE is waiting for a book from Howard…more than a few are downright afraid of it! A guidebook for what to do, how to do it and with whom, filled with real life examples from a pro. I’ll be the first to read it!"

Howard Bragman, like no else, was born with bragging rights—as his name suggests. And yet his work has never been about braggadocio. Rather he is all about sheer honesty and unprecedented humor in a field way too full of phonies. Like no publicity artist alive whom I’ve encountered (and there have been more than I’d care to recall), only Howard has always told me the truth. And his truths are funnier than you can begin to imagine. Except that he is sharing them now, so go ahead and imagine. And hold on to something."
