I have not read the book, but I think he covers the same 10 assumptions in that book. As posted by dailypaul user MarkDran,

1. universe is mechanical
2. matter is unconscious
3. The parameters/laws of nature are fixed*
4. total energy and mass is conserved.
5. (Biological) Nature is purposeless
6. (Parental) Inheritance is material
7. Memory is stored a physical trace.
8. Your mind is the activity of your brain*
9. Psychic phenomena are illusory
10. mechanistic medicine is the only kind that works.

The discussion of number 4 in this video was particularly valuable to me.
