Why is so much of Jesus' life not recorded in the Bible?

Almost 30 years of Jesus' life is not chronicled in Scripture.  Is there some deep, dark secret about this time of his life that the early writers did not want to report?  Are there other "gospels" that speak of this time which were not included in the final version of our accepted Christian Bible?  It is hard to believe that Jesus' life is inconsequential during this period.
