Praise for Bare-Faced Messiah:

‘An unsurpassably scathing study of money-mad, power-mad megalomania’ Spectator
‘Bare-Faced Messiah is not only the most comprehensive ever written about L. Ron Hubbard, it’s also the most readable. This story about a brilliant but deeply flawed man who was determined to smash his name into history unfolds like an epic and ultimately tragic film’ Tony Ortega
‘A brilliant expose of Scientology’s conman king’ John Sweeney, author of The Church of Fear
‘A testament to the gullibility of man in the face of the charlatanry of Scientology’ The Times
‘Admirably written, well documented and must have entailed a great deal of painstaking research’ Sunday Times
‘Hilarious and deeply unsettling…while scathingly critical of Hubbard and his church, Bare-Faced Messiah is, in fact, scrupulously fair’ Maclean’s
‘Russell Miller did the groundbreaking work on Hubbard and the Church of Scientology that every future biographer relies upon’ Lawrence Wright, author of Going Clear
‘Miller does not theorise, nor even very often moralise. The reader must provide his own interjections, laughter and gasps of astonishment’ Private Eye
‘Bare-Faced Messiah… remains the best and most comprehensive biography of L. Ron Hubbard’ Janet Reitman, author of Inside Scientology: The Story of America’s Most Secretive Religion
