Notes From a 12 Man: A Truly Biased History of the Seattle Seahawks Ready to Hit the Stores

With the kickoff of the regular season only weeks away, it really is starting to feel like it’s time for football.

In case you need anything to further wet your appetite for the upcoming season of Seahawks football, Emmy Award-winning television writer-producer Mark Tye Turner has you covered with his new book Notes From a 12 Man: A Truly Biased History of the Seattle Seahawks.

The book is a must read for any and all Seahawks fans, as it provides a thorough and very entertaining historical look at the team through the eyes of a true 12TH Man.

You probably are thinking, Devon has to say this stuff about the book, why should we take what he is saying about the book without a grain of salt?

Well, how about these reviews…

“Over the years I have seen numerous attempts at presenting the

Seahawks history in writing. But there have not been any done as

well as Notes from a Twelfth Man… I found myself reading the text

and alternately laughing, crying, cringing, and shouting out loud!

Notes from a Twelfth Man… is a fan’s account of the long and sto-

ried history of the Seattle Seahawks from Jack Patera, Bill the Beer

Man, Kenny Easley, and Efren Herrera to Matt Hasselbeck. It was

an enjoyable ride down memory lane for me!”

— Steve Largent

“Mark Turner writes about the Seahawks with childlike fascination.

But unlike a child, Mark has an attention span long enough to get

in a lot of facts and even use some big words. It’s a great read

for Seahawk fans and fans of pro football, period.”

— Kenny Mayne, ESPN

“In this sustained howl of happiness, hilarity, and horror, Mark

Turner perfectly captures the (fundamentally weird) essence of the

Seahawk franchise. No Seahawk fan, serious or casual, can afford

to do without this book.”

— Fred Moody, author of Seattle and the Demons of Ambition

The book’s author, Mark Turner is originally from Seattle, WA and has continued to passionately follow his beloved Seahawks over the years. The Emmy Award-winning television writer-producer’s other notable works include E!’s Talk Soup and the dating-reality television show Blind Date.

The book goes for $24.95 and can be found starting in September at various retail outlets throughout the Pacific Northwest or, for Seahawks fans that don’t call the Pacific Northwest home, on Amazon.com.
