Sacred Cows: The Truth About Divorce & Marriage by Danielle Teller and Astro Teller

Sacred Cows (2014) tackles the sacrosanct subject of marriage, an institution often considered to be above criticism. Rather than offering practical guidance on how to fix a marriage or how to recover after a marriage dissolves, these blinks consider how society is arranged to make us feel bad about divorce. The advocates of certain societal viewpoints are given a firm dressing down.

  • Anyone looking for a novel perspective on divorce
  • Individualists and libertarians
  • People interested in sociology and psychology
