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.

"works well if you have seen the film"
How outrageous he was. The book is not particularly well written but the story is V Good
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
That outrageous you can not help but laugh
Loved the Film and still was on the edge of my seat when listening to the book.
Would recommend this time and time again to anybody who asked!! Totally not what I'd have expected and the narrator really brought the book to life as well, spot on every time
"absolutely superb.better than the film ."

really enjoyed the book and listening about his absolute crazy life. It takes a bit to get into but pursue as i believe it only gets better.
Really enjoyed the narrator top performance.
"Just not for me"
Didn't like how it was written, annoyed me start to finish I'm sorry to say. The narration hurt my ears, listen to the preview before hand just to pre warn you.
"A Heady Ride Through Jordans World"
Well narrated and an insight into the winner takes all world of the stockbroker. if you liked the film then you'll love this. One thing that isn't mentioned is the poor schmucks who bought his stock and lost their money. This man is not your friend and he's not Robin Hood.
An unbelievable story of a man with a talent to generate a great wealth, as his life roller coasters out of control with drugs and alcohol
