In order to make full use of this book you would need to be able to read the DSS in the original language and be multilingual as well as have access to a number of major libraries which house the 1000?+ titles listed here. If you did not own the complete DSS the book could guide you as to what you need and what your options were. The book is mainly aimed at post graduates who needs an extensive. bibliography concerning all things Qumran or need to source a particular document. Of passing interest to the layman could be the following; the mention of software programs and websites in ch.13 which can provide the text and translations etc; the book helpfully provides more than one name by which many documents are known and should you be looking for a particular text makes it easier to find. So this is a highly specialised book with an advanced audience in view which just so happens to have a potentially misleading title.
