Now a major motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

'an incredible - and strangely compelling - story of shocking greed and power' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could on drugs, sex and travel.

From the binge that sank a 17-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king. Here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

In the 1990s, Jordan Belfort became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of the canyons of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island.

In this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power and excess no one could invent – the extraordinary story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down.

Also by Jordan Belfort is CATCHING THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, which tells of what happened next...

Great book

The only reason I don't give it 5/5 is because I hate that Belfort makes me like him when he hurt so many people. I've also been a drug addict so I know what it's like to be a whole other person that's not yourself. Thing is, he doesn't take enough ownership of the pain he caused people he didn't know.
All up, he writes well. Funny and lovable character who from an outsider pov is easily forgiven.

Good read

It's a big book that drags along a bit in parts and unfortunately (sanely) I found myself hating the protagonist for the better part of the book, I'd say until the epilogue and acknowledgements, however I still enjoyed the read. Will buy the second book if it's under $10

Good read, no hero

A very good read, well worth it. If you have already seen the movie then just battle few the first few chapters as its identical to the movie. Jordan Belfort is no hero though, and if your reading this expecting to idealise the man you will be disappointed. All in all an interesting read and I would recommend to others.
