When your last name is “Bragman,” your best career options are professional wrestler or public relations flak. PR honcho Howard Bragman has been pimping stars and gadgets for years with respected firm Bragman Nyman Cafarelli. Now he's written a book called Where's My Fifteen Minutes? for the rest of us. Bragman tells us we should buy his book “because public images are no longer reserved for actors, athletes and politicians.  In the age of Google, Facebook, iPhones and YouTube we all have public images–and if we don't define ourselves we will still be defined; and probably in a way that doesn't make us happy.” He'll do a little Q&A at this event, which sounds like something we'll regret not attending.
