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.

    "Great story line from chapter to chapter"

    thoroughly enjoyed listening to how the young,rich & disfunctional live. The story takes you on a roller coaster of craziness. even though I'd seen the film the book went into further depth

    Story
    "So much better than the film"
    Would you listen to The Wolf of Wall Street again? Why?

    Yes, it is an exciting story and great fun.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The debauchery and antics that happened.


    Have you listened to any of Eric Meyers’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No but he did a great job articulating the book.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh mostly, it was good fun.


    Any additional comments?

    After watching the film (which I must say is a fairly accurate rendition of the book) I wanted to read the story. The antics of the guys were even worse than depicted in the motion picture. It is great fun and goes into more detail about the relationships and deals.

    Story
    "It does everything the movie does."

    Everything. Plus a little extra, hearing the internal dialogue makes more sense of Jordan and his life. It has me nearly in tears, in outrageous anger, and heart warming bouts of understanding. A truly five star book and expertly read.

    Very funny. Loved it. Much more detail and more of the "true" story than in the film.

    "Only half a story"

    Great but then peters out and the second half of the story is simply summed up in a couple of sentences. Very well read though.
