    It turns out that most negotiations are over even before they begin. The agent who has spent the most time planning for the negotiation, doing their homework, and collecting the data that they'll need is the one that's going to walk away from the table with the best deal and a sense of winning. Wouldn't you want that person to be you?

    Power Distribution Units (PDUs) – you mean power strips, right? That's what I thought when I was first introduced to this product. Boy oh boy was I wrong!

But we are really talking about two very different products here.

SDN allows the network to be virtualized. That's where the real power of SDN comes from, and that's what we'll be exploring in this book.

    You would think that the job of managing outsourced work would not require the person doing it to give speeches. However, if you thought this, then you'd be wrong. It turns out that when a company is willing to give up control over how work is performed by bringing in contractors, the relationship between the company and both the contractors and the firms that provide them becomes critically important.

    Virtualization can take on many different forms: virtual memory, virtual servers, and virtualized storage. In each of these cases, we've been able to move beyond the underlying physical components that make up the system and through the use of clever virtualization techniques we've been able to get more out of the system. This is what we're going to explore in this book.

    The Greek philosopher Heraclitus is the one who is credited with saying "The only thing that is constant is change." In the world of giving speeches this is especially true. One does not just suddenly become a great speaker. Rather, what happens is that we start to give speeches and gradually over time we get better at doing it. However, we'll never get any better at speaking in public if we don't know how to change.
