The Tipping Point vs. The Wisdom of Crowds

(A comment on a ReadWriteWeb post titled "Study: There is No Tipping Point, Blog Readers Are Skeptical". I think I just found out what was wrong with my cocomment setting. Hopefully it will work from now.)

"Gladwell's arguments in the 2000 book The Tipping Point had reached levels of cliche approaching The Wisdom of Crowds, in large part because of its seductiveness to marketers."

I find the statement very misleading. It should be the other way around. The Wisdom of Crowds was published a few years later than The Tipping Point. And it has not made people think and debate as much as The Tipping Point has.
