Agnetha Fältskog – The Girl With The Golden Hair

978-1-78155-521-7The life and career of Agnetha are celebrated in Daniel Ward’s new biography Agnetha Fältskog – The Girl With The Golden Hair.

Though unauthorised and thus with no direct input from Agnetha or those close to her, the book is extremely well researched. All phases of Agnetha’s life are covered, from her early childhood when she first fell in love with music, her infamous first public performance aged five, singing on the dance band circuit, her solo recording career, through the ABBA years, and on after ABBA, to her 2013 album A and beyond.

The Girl With The Golden Hair is well written and an enjoyable read. It’s very respectful and not sensationalist in any way. The unfortunate episodes of Agnetha’s later life are not avoided, as they shouldn’t be, but they are covered delicately and with respect.

There is also a photo section, with many familiar but some lesser-seen photos of Agnetha through her life – a few that I don’t recall seeing before.

I was honoured to be asked to read a draft version of the book. I’m happy to see that I was able to make a contribution to the finished product.

Daniel has also written ABBA – The Quiz Book, as well as crime fiction and articles for medical publications.

If you are a fan of Agnetha, I’m sure you will enjoy this book. More information can be found at the publisher’s website.
