Writing a book about the Turtles was an entertaining yet confusing process. It was entertaining because once the curtain was pulled back on the story and the characters were revealed as real people, not simply a homogeneous group of all presumed “winners”, true insights were revealed. What separates the winning Turtles today from those Turtles who have literally had no success since 1983? It is a core question addressed in my upcoming book. Why was the process confusing? Some Turtles who have never talked until now, opened up. Others who had gone on record over the years, got tight lipped. I still don’t know exactly what it is that some of them want kept from the public eye. In the end, they are all just people, which is motivating for everyone else who did not answer the 1983 and 1984 want ads.
