One of the best-selling music titles of last year, now in paperback.

This book is the first truly thorough and honest 'warts-and-all' biography, covering all aspects of the ABBA members' lives and careers - the period before the group came together, the amazing success story of the seventies, their marriage and divorces, the ups and downs of their business empire and their careers after the group.

The bulk of the book focuses on the ABBA years. As the story of the group and its members develop, the book takes a look at the group's musical development, offering an insightful critique of their songs in terms of European tradition.

Similarly the ABBA story is related in the context of Swedish history and culture.

'...compelling and incredibly detailed...essential reading for anyone wondering what the pop world looked like in the 1970s...' MOJO 'An extraordinary book...Palm makes a case for Abba being THE musical story of the 20th century. After reading this Dancing Queen will never sound the same again.' Q **** 'Another fine addition to the canon of music biographies...Palm's biography is extremely thorough and dipped deeply in a pond of melancholy. A powerful, moving read' THE TIMES
