Advice for Future Corpses (and Those Who Love Them) - Sallie Tisdale

Sallie Tisdale has been a nurse for many years, including a decade in palliative care. Her most recent book, Advice for Future Corpses and Those Who Love Them, is a frank and open discussion about the medicalization of the dying experience and the choices we can make to make a ‘good death’ more likely. 

As a recent New York Times review said: “Tisdale does not write to allay anxieties but to acknowledge them, and she brings death so close, in such detail and with such directness, that something unusual happens, something that feels a bit taboo. She invites not just awe or dread—but our curiosity. And why not? We are, after all, just 'future corpses pretending we don’t know.'”
