The amsbook class is designed to meet the requirements of the AMS, and  
isn't designed to be customised.  I would recommend that you use a  
more general book class such as memoir for your project.

That being said, you could add the following to your document preamble

\setcounter{tocdepth}{4} %
\expandafter\def\csname r at tocindent4\endcsname{0pt}

Solution due to Ulrike Fischer here: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.text.tex/msg/21cebbb34004c5ad?

But the next thing you want to change won't be so simple, so I really  
would suggest using memoir.
