"Mark Turner writes about the Seahawks with childlike fascination. . . 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
"…a detailed, humorous and sometimes pained fan perspective of the franchise's 33 years of existence. [Turner] covers everything—from his magical memories of watching his first game at the Kingdome to the tense period when Ken Behring almost moved the team, to quirky, who-woulda-thunk-it trivia about the team."
"Turner's book is packed with . . . specific and funny Seahawks moments. Some of them we remembered, some of them we'd forgotten, some of them (especially the pre-1983 stuff) we'd never known. It's a book that will sit on our bookshelf probably until we die, ready to supply a quick trip down memory lane whenever we desire it."
"I can say without hyperbole that not only is this the best book ever written about the Seattle Seahawks, it's one of the best sports books I've ever read, period. Full stop."
—Dave Krieg's Strike Beard
"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."
"If you've been searching for a comprehensive, conversationally-toned, boosterish history of the Seattle Seahawks, composed entirely of short, bathroom-length entries, search no longer. And, yes, that may sound like an absurd 'if' but the Hawks are sports lifeblood in these parts, and every fan has memories he or she would like to relive, or even just confirm. Enter television writer Mark Tye Turner and his Notes From a 12 Man: A Truly Biased History of the Seattle Seahawks... Recalling everything from the team's trade of Ahmad Rashad to Steve Largent's epic revenge hit on Denver safety Mike Harden, it's enough to put even the most Cliff Claven of us to shame."

In this book, Mark Tye Turner reached into the minds of sport fans everywhere. He reached out and struck a chord with sport fans around the world. He showed the joy and sorrow of all fans of all sports. This is a wonderful book, not only for Seahawk fans, but for anyone who has endured the many ups and downs with their favorite sport team. Mark Tye Turner really accomplished an uncanny ability to express his emotions intertwined with his love of a sport team.
As a Seahawk fan, I took great delight in sharing common experiences with Mark Tye Turner in this book. As a fan of a sport team, I know that I would certianly appreciate another fan's loyalty and devotion to his team.
Thank you, Mark Tye Turner for a brilliantly writeen book from the life of a true fan.
The best part is that the stories are brought to us from the arm chair, sports bar and stadium seats of a die hard Seahawks fan!
For those of you who live and die by Seattle Seahawks football, the stories will be familiar, however even the most loyal fans will find surprising statistics and stories sprinkled throughout the book. If you're a Seattle baseball fan (not that I'd know about that!) you'll have a few bonuses as you read these pages. This is definitely a book that belongs in the Seahawks shrine in your home!
