I bought this book thinking it could possibly offer me some insight into my relationship with my husband -this it did and so much more! This book offers guidance and tools to enhance ALL relationships including your children, friends, parents,teachers and the most important one – with yourself. By writing short 1-2 page chapters, it is easy to read while at the same time filled with deep and meaningful insights and tools to live a more present and joyful life. It is a book that can be kept at your bed side and reread many times over. I have it sandwiched between Eckhart Tolle’s “Power of Now” and Byron Katie’s “Loving What is”, and it greatly complements the both of them. Thank you Jason Fischer for writing a book from your heart and soul – what a gift this is to humanity!!

Excellent book! My wife read it and it has definitely changed our relationship in a profound way. I read it first and we are going to read it again together. I highly recommend it for couples. I highly recommend it for anybody. An easy read but at the same time it will show you how you can better your relationships not to mention how it will change you personally in a real positive way. It gives you a chance to really take a good look at yourself, increase your awareness and become a more enlightened individual.

I am almost finished with Jason Fischer & Sabrina Kindell’s book and wanted to let everyone know how powerful and easy the lessons are. I recently went home for the holidays, which is generally drama filled, and I am exhausted when I return. However, using my new wisdom captured from this book, I actually had a nice time and look forward to the next visit. Clearly worth every penny!
For anyone who liked The Four Agreement’s, I would say this book is as powerful, and definitely easier fully understand and implement.Thanks for taking the time to write this! Looking forward to your next masterpiece. And so does my family.

I got this book as a Goodreads giveaway and I am so glad I won it. I read it, and here is what I think: Reading about how to improve or maintain relationships is such a grueling task (well, it is for me). However, this book is quick, to the point, and really helpful. Most of all it makes sense! You can tell you’re getting really good advice from someone who knows people. It’s an easy read. Anyone could get so much from this book.

Jason Fischer has an extra-ordinary thesis that to have an extra-ordinary relationship you have to know and apply the two truths about love, which are ‘give permission’ and ‘take responsibility.’ This is elegant and simple, and from my perspective and experience, true. I highly recommend The Two Truths About Love to everyone, therapists and couples.

To make something complicated is easy. To make it simple is much harder. And to be truly clear about what makes relationships extraordinary is elegant. This is what Jason Fischer and Sabrina Kindell have done in unfolding the two truths about relationships. In simple and accessible language, drawn from the lives of struggling couples, and supported by years of experience, both in the consulting room and on the meditation cushion, they have carefully offered the heart of the Buddha’s wisdom woven intimately with insights from contemporary psychotherapy. The truths may look simple, but they clearly point to the fact that our relationships are, in fact, profound and enduring spiritual practices.

The significance of relationships is present from the beginning of life, and continues to be a vital element in a lifetime of growth and development. This book makes a special contribution by defining the extraordinary relationship and pointing out some key elements in its development. I’m especially grateful to Jason Fischer and Sabrina Kindell for the clarity with which they lead us through the development of extraordinary relationships.

Simple yet not simplistic, the teachings in this book are wise and trustworthy riverbanks for the flow of intimate relationships.
