As @maniflames suggested, Ryan Holiday is one of the most important contemporary philosophers. If you know stoicism well enough, you might not get a lot of new ideas out of this book, but

  • it is written in contemporary English, a bit easier to understand for most
  • it's the second book of his trilogy on - not just Stoic - philosophical questions. He wrote first The Obstacle is the Way and finished the "series" with Stillness is the Key

I enjoyed them all, particularly this last one. If you click on the links, you can read my summaries on them.

Happy reading!
