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.

    "I feel wrong for just listening to it..."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The only people i can imagine enjoying this book more is those like the author who have no moral values to speak of and are just as self-indulgent and hedonistic and God-less as he is.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jordan Belfort again?

    I would never listen to a work by this author again even if he handed me his considerable fortune.


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

    I thought that Eric Meyers did an absolutely OUTSTANDING performance; his command of various accents, cadences and mannerisms was the one thing that kept me listening, alas not until the ned of the book as I gave up with an hour to go. Eric, you're are amazing and I love your work.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Wolf of Wall Street?

    This overwritten piece of junk should be cut entirely. I'll grant that the epilogue was interesting so maybe I'd keep that for the movie and maybe some of the bits that tok place in London as the locations were familiar to me but apart from that it would all hit the cutting room floor.


    Any additional comments?

    i am not afraid to read about he darker side of human nature by any mans, or to watch it in a theatre or on a movie screen but to wait 19 hours for the slightest bit of non self indulgent confession or cry for redemption sickens me. This guy appears to be reliving his sordid life and loving every minute of it and like a fool I thought I'd join him for the ride. Mr. Wolf, that's 19 hours of my life I'll never get back.

    "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.

    "A throughly enjoyable book"

    Enjoyed the whole 20hrs, having watched the film first, I feel made the book more enjoyable. It was nice to see how they differed, and how Hollywood influences. The story jumps around alot in the beginning, which didn't help, and left I felt, some parts untold. But I enjoyed the story and how wild the ride was.

    "Narration is excellent"

    The narrator was excellent, almost Ray Liotta-like in his performance. They story was fantastic although at parts it went on a bit. The narration made it very interesting.

    "It should be right up my street..."

    It's a funny one this because you know what you should be getting, but in reality it is the story of somebody SO self absorbed it's hard to listen on at parts. A crazy tale all the same.
