From the back cover:

"Little Did They Know the Stir They Would Cause

"The community of people who wrote, copied, and hid the Scrolls in caves lived in great anticipation of the end times and saw themselves as the forebears of a new kingdom to come. Instead, the community died out...and 2,000 years passed before the discovery of the writings that would draw worldwide attention to the fascinating age in which they lived.

"The modern-day story of the Scrolls is truly remarkable--with clandestine meetings, incredible coincidences, and unexpected surprises. Dr. Randall Price tells us that story, which surveys...

  • The yet-to-be-solved mysteries about the identity and beliefs of those who wrote the Scrolls
  • Claims that prominent cults are making about the Scrolls
  • Today's furious debate aobut who rightfully owns the Scrolls
  • Evidence that the Scrolls affirm the authenticity of the Bible
  • The controversy over the so-called "suppressed" Scrolls
  • The newest efforts to find more Dead Sea Scrolls

"'Secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls' is a remarkable and authoritative resource based on meticulous research and firsthand interviews with the people closest to the Scrolls--including translators, scholars, eye-witnesses, and the nomadic shepherd who first found the Scrolls."

Philologos Review:  
I've read a few books on this subject and this is the most accessible of the lot. It is written in an easy style and manages to cover just about every aspect concerning the scrolls including: the story behind the discovery of the scrolls, what the scrolls mean to academia, what the scrolls teach and how they have been used/abused. A nice chart entitled "Historical Overview of the Second Temple Period" and a chronological history of the scrolls rounds out this great resource. Nicely done.
