In my search for information, I've found quite a few references to PAL System (Posture, Arms, Legs). This system was created about 30 years ago by Vern Gambetta in his book:

Sport Specific Speed Book: Improve Running Mechanics

I haven't made the leap yet to buy the book, and wanted to query if anyone has read the book and if it has value. That or any other good sources that might help us all.
