I loved listening to this, in fact I listened to it twice. Is very dense with original ideas. Manguel speaks just like the poet and wordsmith he is. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Don't bother with this lecture. Usually the lectures are fantastic, but, Mangal just misses the mark on these. Any insights are overshadowed by the boredom of the end results.
It wasted an hour of my reading time.

Very interesting; thought-filled reflections and arguments about language and literature in modern civilization. Requires close listening.
I found his elocution quite irritating, so I would rather have read the lectures instead.

Very, very academic, like a university lecture. There are actually some interesting details in this, but I wasn't in the mood for the erudite formulation. (This may have been my fault, not the author's.)
