Five stars. The best and newest defense of Naturalism out there. In his 400 page book, he covers everything from the existence of the universe to the existence of logic and mathematical facts. He even spends plenty of time talking about how being moral is the best thing for everyone to do in the sense that it will make people most happy. I'm not sure I agree with him there but he makes a convincing case.
Here is a brief list of the things he covers: plausible inference (criteria for judging theories), free will and compatibilism, historical method, and many more. Carrier is a PhD student at Columbia University getting his degree in History.
The only things I didn't like was (1) the cover looks bizarre, it's some guy climbing into a weird spaceship and (2) the margins weren't very wide so I couldn't write much in them. As far as the content goes, great book. Provides a great challenge to theists and a good defense for atheists.
