Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Leonardo Dicaprio (The Great Gatsby, The Aviator), Matthew McConaughey (Mud, Magic Mike), Jonah Hill (Moneyball), Jean Dujardin (The Artist), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights, Zero Dark Thirty) and Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous), and adapted for the screen by Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire). "What separates Jordan's story from others like it, is the brutal honesty." - Leonardo DiCaprio.

Stock market multimillionaire at 26, federal convict at 36, he partied like a rock star, lived like a king, and barely survived his rise and fall as an American entrepreneurial icon. By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sunk a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him for at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, 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, 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. In this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent - the story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down.

    Story
    "works well if you have seen the film"
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    How outrageous he was. The book is not particularly well written but the story is V Good


    What does Eric Meyers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    if you have seen the film then you would swear that Dicaprio had based performance on the narration of this book.... brought it to life


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    That outrageous you can not help but laugh


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the Film and still was on the edge of my seat when listening to the book.

    The above is meant as an approximation of what listening to this "book" is like. I don't need my protagonists to be likable but they do have to be compelling and there's just nothing here to create any suspense or interest. This book is repetitive, shallow and shockingly uncritical of its subject. The narrator's high pitched nasal whine did not help matters.

    Story
    "The film was awful, the book worse"

    I gave it a chance after seeing the truly awful film - maybe the book had more substance, it was certainly long enough to include more than sex, drugs and . . . . sex, drugs and . . . . abject greed. Well it may have been but I'm afraid that I could find it before I decided that enough was enough and gave up on it. What I heard was bad.

    "Absolutely Brilliant!!"

    This a fantastic, funny, rollercoaster ride of a story. The narrator is one of the best I've heard to go with it. I really enjoyed this. It's fun and easy to listen to. Your turn.

    Story
    "A story of greed and ultimately redemption"

    The first thing that I will say about this book is that it is different to the film, and to my great regret I listened to this after I had seen the film and so in many ways I already had certain expectations about what this book might contain. Though there is a notable difference between the two.

    The Wolf of Wall Street is the memoir of Jordan Belfort who at one stage was one of the most influential and wealthy names in Wall Street. At the same time he was a raging drug addict and alcoholic, cheat and generally of highly questionable moral standing. Though at the same time he was a natural leader and a born businessman. This book charts the rise and fall through years of excessive material greed and unbelievable wealth.

    Though at the same time it paints the picture of a man who knew how to motivate people, also a man who could be tremendously generous to the people around him.

    The narration is okay but not amazing. There are times where the narrator voices one of the female characters and it is just jarring to listen to.

    "Amazing"

    The book is long and so enjoyable. The reading is fantastic with different voices for different people it really brings the book to life. I've listened to this audio book so many times.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the film or has an interest in autobiographies. A truly amazing story that is filled with such madness it almost seems like fiction.
