Default Constructive Critiscism after 5 chapters

I'm not sure this is the place for this but I don't know where else I would write this...

So far I'm enjoying this book and I am learning which is the overall goal, but I gotta say I wish this book started with chapter 4 and placed chapters 1-3 at the end of the book. It seems to place the cart before the horse or start you running before you are walking. I understand the philosophy of diving right into a working app but going through all of that stuff with the command line and yeoman and bower was murder especially when the framework has changed and you had to install some extra things the book doesn't tell you to do. The forum here has been great! It's helped me a lot but now that i'm into Chapter 5 I gotta say I really wish it had started out with this stuff first. Building this swiping photo carousel is far more valuable and practical of an application than StockDog. Also, I wish the book would tell you specifically what file from the accompanying project files certain sections of code is referring to in chapters 4 and 5. Chapter 1 was very specific in telling you what file the code was referencing, but with what I've seen in chapter 4 and 5 its like, "good luck figuring out what example I'm talking about". I spend a long time comparing code and scanning over the files trying to find what is referenced. When I'm learning a new language and I'm copying examples I still like to type it in line by line and it would make that way easier if the book simply told you something like, "look at this snippet of code and refer to such and such file from the resource files." It doesn't do that that you have to guess and figure it out.

Other than that i'm enjoying this book and hoping to finish going through it soon.

Cheers!
