The positive side of this inspiring autobiography cannot be overshadowed. There is, though, arrogance and self-certainty below the surface of Mr Gardner's charm and urbanity. He keeps company with the mighty of Arab States and their autocracy rubs off on him. Maybe it is his own regal descent, revealed by a television programme's research, that makes him as bold as a lion and as sure as Caesar. Such can name-drop with impunity and Frank Gardner should be seen only as the remarkable man he is, and an inspired communicator.
