Yeah, it's a very difficult book to get through even though it's very good. The last chapter, while the most optimistic one, doesn't do much to alleviate fears, anger... or anything really.

I don't see how it could.  Everything he writes about being tried so far was either ineffective or actually made things worse.  The only cure would be radically changing human nature and, given how many different cultures have tried that thru the eons, if it were possible it would have already happened.
