The title of the book Peaceful on Purpose drew me to the book.

What impact did this book ha

This book did not match the title in my opinion. Peaceful on Purpose had more of the prosperity gospel statements and loads of statements about the Corona virus, but very little that could make changes to my thinking. An interesting book, but not a life changing, "must read this again" type of book.

It seems, the main thought is to encourage people to see peace amidst trying conditions, and practice staying calm.
