Usually, the books take one of two approaches:
The author describes the physical, legal, and economic aspects of dying.
The author describes the social, emotional, and metaphysical aspects of dying.
Tisdale does both in her book Advice for Future Corpses: A Practical Perspective on Death and Dying.
Tisdale worked for years as a nurse, but she writes like someone who is trained in the humanities. She quotes Greek philosophers, European poets, and Buddhist monks in order to create spaces for her readers to meditate about the meaning of death and dying.
