NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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 that 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.

    " I didn't particularly care for this book, it wasn't my usual genre but I wanted to give it a chance but it really just seemed like a very amateur attempt at writing a bio and trying to make it exciting. it didn't come across as honest or genuine or real. i think the author would have been better off just writing it off as fiction. "

    " Greed and crazy scheme, all supposedly true. "

    " Really good book about success and failure. It outlines what this 100 millionaire does with all his money and how he got to the top and then how he set himself up to come crashing down legally, financially and personally. It really shows how excessive wall street can be, and details his drug, hooker and party filled life to the point where you absolutely despise him, but also goes into detail of his family life (with his kids) that really makes you pity him. Overall I couldn't put this book down, and it just had me glued to it. It really is one that you'll either absolutely love or absolutely hate though. "

    " I couldn't believe the things this guy has been through. Some of this stuff just doesn't seem possible. A really entertaining read. "
