Kim,

The book does not concern the mechanist thesis, there is only one
reference to Church.

Everett is given a whole section, but Ladyman et al. are agnostic as to
it's application to the macroscopic world (that is, if there are
macroscopic many worlds). But they are not hostile to the interpretation.

The book is good for getting a very informed overview of what current
physics has to say for _metaphysics_ and philosophy of science. The
authors sketch their variant of structural realism - it's good to read
it if you still cling to the concept of "matter".

Cheers,
GŁnther
