Abba first came to prominence when they won the coveted Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with their highly acclaimed "Waterloo". Stig Anderson was confident they would win and was determined to bring them fame and fortune. This Little Book of Abba charts the phenomenon that the band became, from their rise in Sweden to the demise of a worldwide sensation. Despite the group's split in 1982, the band enjoyed a revival of the late 1980s when tribute band Bjorn Again began in Melbourne, Australia. It was a new concept that was to take the world by storm and ABBA tribute bands are still popular and successful today. Songwriters Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus continued their musical collaboration and their biggest successes came with Mamma Mia! which features the music of ABBA, and the movie of the same name starring Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, and Julie Walters.
