Soon to be 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, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700, 000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited 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.
WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER
"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
