When I read the Gladwell piece I thought that overall the scenes were relevant and I was able to get a clear picture of Cesar and his training methods. However, one part of the article seemed unnecessary to me at first. The parallel Gladwell used between the movement therapists that work with autistic children and Cesar made me feel a bit distracted because I initially felt that a lot of time or space was used to develop the imagery (the therapy sessions) for that parallel. I understand its overall relevance but when I read the article for the first time I was thrown off and became unsure of how the article would progress. I do understand that including Tortora's and Eric's therapy sessions provided imagery that could help audiences understand what was being said about Cesar, but, I wasn't certain and still am not sure if it was totally necessary. I felt that the commentary the movement therapist provided was enough to sustain the point that Gladwell was making. On another note, I really enjoyed the way Gladwell ended the piece, tying in Cesar's "epiphany" to an actual case that he had. I felt that it demonstrated the entire point that owners have to be willing to change their behaviors as well in order to have healthy and happy pets.
