Why did the authors decide to create one large application, Angello, throughout the book? I think this adds additional complexity. I prefer a book where the examples follow the KISS principle. I would rather the examples be as simple as possible to illustrate the concepts, rather than requiring me to follow the entire architecture of an application. Do other readers agree or disagree?

Re: Angello
Good question... the title of the book is AngularJS in Action and the goal is to show AngularJS well... in action. The best way to do this is in the context of a real application.
