Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected
Devora Zack, an avowed introvert and a successful consultant who speaks to thousands of people every year, found that most networking advice books assume that to succeed you have to become an extrovert. Or at least learn how to fake it. Not at all. There is another way.
This book shatters stereotypes about people who dislike networking. They’re not shy or misanthropic. Rather, they tend to be reflective—they think before they talk. They focus intensely on a few things rather than broadly on a lot of things. And they need time alone to recharge. Because they’ve been told networking is all about small talk, big numbers and constant contact, they assume it’s not for them.
But it is! Zack politely examines and then smashes to tiny fragments the “dusty old rules” of standard networking advice. She shows how the very traits that ordinarily make people networking-averse can be harnessed to forge an approach that is just as effective as more traditional approaches, if not better. And she applies it to all kinds of situations, not just formal networking events. After all, as she says, life is just one big networking opportunity—a notion readers can now embrace.

The 29% Solution: 52 Weekly Networking Success Strategies
In many ways, success at networking is the uncommon application of common knowledge. Most people understand that networking is important to their success–they just lack a step-by-step process to get the results they want. Almost no one really implements a comprehensive methodology that will build a business through networking. Thus, the need to network is ‘common knowledge,’ and the development of the methodology required to be successful at it is the ‘uncommon application.’ By reading this book, you will experience the true essence and meaning of networking. The 29% Solution gives you the answers to two conflicting questions that a business owner or salesperson faces every day: How can I tend to my existing clients while at the same time network for new business? and, Should I place higher value on my current clients or on new clients?

Networking (2nd Edition)
Networking Second Edition Jeffrey S. Beasley This text provides a comprehensive look at computer networking from the point of view of the network administrator. It guides readers from an entry-level knowledge in computer networks to advanced concepts in Ethernet networks; router configuration; TCP/IP networks; local-, campus-, and wide-area network configuration; network security; optical networks; voice over IP; and industrial networks. Extensive examples on the Windows Server 2003/2008 configuration and system configuration for the Linux operating system are also included. A complete chapter is devoted to protecting and securing a network from potential network attacks. Topics include denial of service attacks, firewalls, intrusion detection, password cracking, packet sniffing, and analyzing unsecured data packets. Other key network security issues, such as configuring router access lists, configuring a virtual private network (VPN) connection, and securing wireless networks, are also covered. Router configuration is examined, ranging from an introduction to router configuration to configuring multiple routing protocols for intranet and Internet data traffic. Routing protocols key to basic network operations are examined, including static, RIP, IGRP, OSPF, EIGRP, and BGP. The discussions on routing protocols are accompanied with in-depth steps for configuring the router to run the protocol, verify operation, and troubleshoot the router. Key Pedagogical Features NET-CHALLENGE SOFTWARE provides a simulated, hands-on experience in configuring routers and switches.
