Reigniting the Spark by Dr. Bruce Chalmer

“Reading this book is like breathing fresh Vermont air-–refreshing, inspiring, down-to-earth, and filled with grounded wisdom that emerges from decades of practice as a therapist with hundreds of couples. “

Peggy Sax, Ph.D., Psychologist, Executive Director of Re-Authoring Teaching

“This book is concise at only 158 pages, but it is so well written that it feels like we are sitting in his office or laying on his couch, talking about what we want and asking how we can get there.”

I was hooked on this book from the very first sample I read of it….I appreciated that [Dr. Chalmer] doesn’t shy away from difficult topics like sex, trauma, and anxiety in relationships and that he acknowledges the difficulties those situations present in maintaining relationships. I’ve even recommended this book to someone for precisely that reason….The writing was easy and conversational, yet absolutely conveyed his thoughts and authority on the subject matter. It was really an enjoyable read….I really appreciated this book and am even implementing a few things into my own marriage.

I give Reigniting the Spark five stars.”

“Happily married for 13 years, I wasn’t sure what this book would offer to me and my spouse. As it turns out, quite a bit! I came to realize how easy it is to fall into complacency and “relationship laziness” to avoid conflict, and how that can lead to stagnation. Through the examples of many couples he has counseled, Dr. Chalmer explores constructive methods of resolving disagreements and enhancing communication. This book is not just for people in troubled situations, but for anyone who is seeking a higher level of satisfaction with their partner.”

“Whatever the state of one’s relationship, they can benefit from this entertaining, episodic discussion. Dr. Chalmer’s emphasis on kindness and lack of pop psychology draw the reader in as if they were reading a novel.”
