How does it differ from "The Tipping Point"?

They both seem to have the whole examining the strange causal relationships thing going on, and I'm not sure I want to read "The Tipping Point" again in different words...

I read both books and they are very different, although both try to answer curious questions. While "The Tipping Point" tries to explain how fads are created, "Freakonomics" uses data to show that many times the reasons for certain facts or trends (e.g. crime in NY, Sumo results) are very deifferent than they seem to be. It is definitelly worth reading!
