The Saga biography[, written by Edwin Ammerlaan,] traces the band's history over the last three decades; from the pre-Saga days with Truck and Fludd in the early seventies, 'till the departure of singer Michael Sadler in December 2007. The members of Saga have approved of this project and, in an effort to ensure factual correctness, they read the book prior to release.
"Thirty years is a long time in the life of a band and as you can imagine there are many twists and turns that the long road brings! There were a lot of happy times as well as some not so happy times and Edwin's account of these are entertaining as well as enlightening for anyone who wants to go down that road or fans wanting to learn some of the inner workings of Saga and the members. You won?t put it down!" - Jim Gilmour, Saga.
