From the Back Cover
The reason for the development of the Pose Method® was the absence of a method for teaching running technique. Running was practiced, but not taught as a skill.
Pose Method® was the first methodology to teach running as a skill, with it's own theory, concepts, and exercises.
Pose Method® was developed in 1977 in Soviet Union by Nicholas Romanov.

Regarding the book, the prose style is kind of weak and drags on. It is very poetic, not too explicit nor empirical, and doesn't seem well-adapted to the audience. I think poets sympathetic to Dr. Romanov's cause would enjoy it, though.
There is a lot of fluff; the book could be a third the size and still get to the basics of the POSE technique. I was not swayed by the first dozen (or more?) chapters of argumentation in favor of the system, I bought the book, I am working with the technique, I don't need a million justifications as to why I am right in doing so.
The best part of the book is the cue system while running. "Imagine falling forward" etc. That, a few of the drills, and the mid-to-forefoot strike form the basis of the system, and are worth the price of admission. If they work for you, you'll give the book a 5 star review. If the improvement is only moderate (my case), you may look at the system a little more neutrally.
Ultimately, it's a reasonable read if you want to investigate running technique further. Keep running, don't be a zealot about any system of exercise or running, and that should take you far in your running career and life.
I don't think his method is a panacea for any injured runner, but it's educational and a lot of the exercises he purports are good from a physical therapy standpoint.
