Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach, is written about as hilariously as a book about cadavers can be written. Roach touches on the different ways cadavers help advance science and knowledge on safety regulations. Her descriptions are picturesque. Her humor is subtle and unexpected. Read this book if you feel like learning about bodies: how they decompose, how they might help another person, and how they have a life even after they die.
