Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best Seller

Now a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. 

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids waiting at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort's own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street. In the 1990s, Belfort became one of the most infamous kingpins in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. It's an extraordinary story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent: the tale of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices to making hundreds of millions - until it all came crashing down.

Praise for The Wolf of Wall Street  

“Raw and frequently hilarious.” (The New York Times)

“A rollicking tale of [Jordan Belfort’s] rise to riches as head of the infamous boiler room Stratton Oakmont...proof that there are indeed second acts in American lives.” (Forbes)

“A cross between Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities and Scorsese’s GoodFellas... Belfort has the Midas touch.” (The Sunday Times [London])

“Entertaining as pulp fiction, real as a federal indictment...a hell of a read.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Interesting story of extraordinary life - Too long

What made the experience of listening to The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) the most enjoyable?

The story itself is interesting. I love non-fiction about the lives of extraordinary / unique people living "off the wall" lives that go against the grain of society's normal ho-hum boxed-in existence. Belfort's story fits squarely into what I consider insightful fun. It's educational, entertaining, downright uniquely insane, and TRUE.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

The tales of debauchery and shady business practices on an extreme level.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

Very solid narration but nothing to write home about. I've heard better but I've heard more that are FAR worse. I had no issue with the narration at all. Well done.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Heck, no. It's too long and my only negative comment on the title. There are simply too many details strung out into these unnecessary bouts of information and writing.

Any additional comments?

The book is too long and doesn't even cover the entire Belfort story. You have to get another insanely long audiobook called, "Catching the Wolf of Wall Street" in order to get his full story. The drawn out details of certain events slow the pace of the story to an almost unbearable crawl at times. I would recommend this title and it's next book that goes with it. If you aren't going to listen to "Catching The Wolf of Wall Street," you are cheated out of the entire story that you just spent an INSANE amount of hours listening to. To complete the entire story with the two books, you may find yourself losing interest over time which is not good. I know I did. I haven't finished the last book as I just became burnt out on the length and yammering about the same details for hours on end. You certainly will get your money's worth for how long the title is which is nice. It's a great all-around story that I can highly recommend but it's not going to be a good experience for short attention spans.

Book and story leave a lot to be desired.

The movie was amazing, but the book was only so-so. Listening to the reader do children and women's voices is cringe worthy and hard to bear, evertime.

Definitely kept my attention

What did you love best about The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

I work in the finance industry and thought this would be an interesting listen. It definitely keeps your attention!

Any additional comments?

This book is very entertaining and seems to be very honestly written....that said, it is VERY vulgar. Lots of language, sex, and filled to the brim with drugs. I knew all of those were going to be a component of the book, but it was a little bit too graphic for me.

Just watch the movie...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, but I'm sure that someone who was once in a college frat that doesn't want to deal with the real world would love it.

If you’ve listened to books by Jordan Belfort before, how does this one compare?

No

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Has this guy ever HEARD woman speak?! His voice for Nadine was so shrill and annoying, I feel like Jordan Belfort told him to do it on purpose as an insult to his ex-wife.

Was The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) worth the listening time?

No--the main character would go off on these long, boring monologues to talk about how smart he is out-smarting the U.S. government and how glamorous his life is. The whole book came off as totally narcissistic. At least the movie has Leonardo DiCaprio to distract me from that.

Any additional comments?

Everyone always says "the book is way better than the movie". In this case, I would just watch the movie because (1) it gives this guy a smaller royalty if you watch it on Netflix and (2) you'll get the same information in 2 hours instead of 20.

Outrageous and hilarious all at the same time...

What made the experience of listening to The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) the most enjoyable?

This story is so ridicules it can't possibly be made up.

Whats amazing is this all went down in the early 90's before wall street really went nuts.

What other book might you compare The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) to and why?

No one would listen.

Its another outrageous wall street story.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

His big shot persona, his confidences and slight New York accent give a tough of authenticity to the story.

If you could give The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) a new subtitle, what would it be?

Confessions of a high functioning sociopath...

Any additional comments?

I love audible and appreciate your support of twit and other podcast network's

Good narrator but his women's voices are grating.

This is worth listening to. It's a good story about corruption on Wall St. The only thing I found difficult is when the narrator does the women's voices, they are all screeching. I've had to turn the volume down on my headphones so it wouldn't pierce my eardrums. He should've either read the female voices in his own voice or work on his lady acting.

Not optional heading.

Interesting story though I don't know why he would want his kids to know some of the specifics of sex with their mother and hooked. Narrator did well except for when female characters were speaking. Very distracting, sorry.

Good story, just a bad dude

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

Yes, it is very entertaining to listen to the life of a guy who throws money around left and right. The shenanigans that ensue with hookers, drugs, and stocks is great and keeps you listening.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Bad/angry. I hated that he really never felt sorry for screwing over so many people, and tried to play it like a happily ever after crap.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

I thought Eric's voice was great when he was just being normal, like narrating or Jordon. However, when he try's to do female voices that is another story.

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

Yeah I laughed when Jordon was contemplating having sex with an Ethiopian hooker in Switzerland and said that see looked to clean to have aids.....right?
