To paraphrase Truman Madsen in his introduction, he gave the original eight lectures by presenting Joseph Smith's life as his teachings. In these eight lectures, he presents Joseph Smith's life in illustration of of his teachings. The focus here is on Joseph Smith's teachings, and then backing up those teachings with stories and examples from the Prophet's life. These are very well put together, and if you enjoyed the original lectures, then you will enjoy these too!
