    In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, 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. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book to many friends and family and even loaned the audio book to a few as well. I found it it utterly fantastic (if a little cliche at times) and have enjoyed it so much that it has been listened to in full five times in a month.


    What other book might you compare The Wolf of Wall Street to and why?

    While I'm sure there are MANY other books out there of a similar nature, I myself haven't read any of them, and so I found this to be fresh and Jordan's way of writing did make it very easy to visualize the complete madness of his life in this time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    My favorite moment in the book without a doubt has to be the scene where he was shredding the furniture with what I can only describe as extreme prejudice looking for a crack rock. It was so strange to me to be somewhat involved in that thought process that it has stuck in as a very bold memory.


    Any additional comments?

    While I am aware that some people aren't as in love with this book as me, I would say that anyone who can listen to/read it should at the very least give it a go.
