Neostoicism is not a philosophical or academic theory. It is a lifestyle. In Neostoicism 2.0: Stoicism, Christianity & Personal Empowerment for the 21st Century, author Robert Woolston discusses the details of Neostoic philosophy and the benefits of applying Neostoicism in life. The book breaks down Neostoicism 2.0 into four parts; Ancient Greek Stoicism, Christianity, Neostoicism 1.0, and Neostoicism 2.0. Reading the sections in order will enable readers to fully understand the core philosophy of Neostoicism 2.0 and properly apply it for a higher level of personal empowerment and growth. The immensely personal and spiritual philosophy of the author will have readers seeing a lot of benefits flowing into life without measure or bounds. So: ‘Don’t be scared. Be Neostoic.’

The book takes readers into many layers of spirituality and is an insightful and thought-provoking read. Reading the contents gives a sense of tranquility and calmness when it comes to overcoming the struggles of modern life. I found the philosophy in the book pragmatic, reality-based, cosmopolitan in nature, and easy to understand and follow in modern times. The author’s analysis is helpful and gives readers a better understanding of how the philosophy can be incorporated into their daily lives, regardless of its spiritual background. The goal of Stoicism is understood to involve the pursuit of mastering one’s soul and mind to live virtuously and with integrity. The book exposes another side of spirituality, empowers one’s mind/soul, and shows one how to lead a life filled with abundance, despite the challenges faced. It is a must-read for all those who want to rise higher in their thinking and also in spiritual knowledge.
