"This master work by René Schröder is packed with the experience, the application that works, that only a practiced agilist with decades in the field can provide. Many agile novels appear flat by not showing the likely oppositions and battle-tested work-arounds. Panda is the authentic master novel, with the depth of a library behind each easy to digest and fun-to-read vignette. ..." Joe Justice
