You can't say that without knowing what's the sales of CRB compared to the setting book. And I can hazard a guess that CRB is multiple times a bigger seller, because everybody wants one, while the setting book is really of interest only for GMs (a subset of the market) who want to run Golarion (a subset of a subset).
The number of reviews of ISWG (34) compared to the number of reviews of CRB (130) is likely a good indication of how one compares to the other in terms of number sold.
Sure, that makes some sense. I'd say that probably quite a few players would like to have the setting book as well, but overall you're right.
