Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Now a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio
 
By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids waiting at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort’s own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street. In the 1990s, Belfort became one of the most infamous kingpins in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. It’s an extraordinary story of greed, power, and excess that no one could invent: the tale of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices to making hundreds of millions—until it all came crashing down.
 
Praise for The Wolf of Wall Street

“Raw and frequently hilarious.”The New York Times
 
“A rollicking tale of [Jordan Belfort’s] rise to riches as head of the infamous boiler room Stratton Oakmont . . . proof that there are indeed second acts in American lives.”Forbes
 
“A cross between Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities and Scorsese’s GoodFellas . . . Belfort has the Midas touch.”The Sunday Times (London)
 
“Entertaining as pulp fiction, real as a federal indictment . . . a hell of a read.”Kirkus Reviews

~Austin ,

Great book!

A very interesting read! I feel like there is too many nicknames used, it was hard keeping up with who was being talked about. Other than that, this was a great book!

Better than the Bible!

A great read, not for the faint of heart. Jordon Belfort is the true depiction of an American psycho. Part hero, part villain, you can't help but root for him, knowing he deserves everything he gets. This book will leave you envious, horny, and full of sorrow. And you can't help but look up photos of the Nadine, or searching for what are qualudes.

Definitely recommended!

Interesting life

Good book. However I wanted to hear more about how he went from an innocent stock trader, to the person he became. It jumped way too quickly to his craziness.
