This is an updated edition of the critically acclaimed biography of Abba bringing the story right up to date.
It contains new after word which includes details of how all four members attended the Swedish opening of "Mamma Mia" in 2005 - but they were not seated together. How "Mamma Mia" keeps getting more successful and was made into a film that premiered in July 2008.
It also covers how Benny is enjoying domestic success with his band Benny Andersson's orkester, how Bjorn has emerged as a spokesman for the Swedish Humanist Association, how Frida leads a low-key life out of the spotlight and how the story of Agnetha and her boyfriend turned stalker continues.
