TO Scientologists, founder L. Ron Hubbard is a larger-than-life figure — a war hero, philosopher and humanitarian.

But the real man was a dissembling, emotional wreck who made up most of his legendary exploits out of whole cloth, writes British journalist Russell Miller.

Miller's account of Hubbard's life was so devastating that Scientology tried to have his book banned. "Bare-Faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard," finished the year after Hubbard's 1986 death, was successfully printed everywhere but in the US, where, after two years of litigation, Miller's American publisher threw in the towel.
