Having said that The Gupta Programme has had some rave reviews on this site and across the internet from people who have either fully recovered or are well on the way there. Maybe they just need the greater structure or a step-by-step guide but there could be more to it than that, Ashok is clearly an intelligent guy and successfully recovered himself.
