About this Item

This hilarious, outrageous, and insightful account of a Wall Street swashbuckler and con man and how he made his fortune and ended up in jail but as "an American Entrepreneurial icon" nevertheless, is a great read and was the basis for the ballyhooed film with Leonard Di Caprio. Berlfort is clearly intelligent, a forceful and clear writer, and his account has the mark of authenticity. No BS from him, but many vivid accounts of the BS of others. Not many copies of the first edition were printed, but a sequel volume is not as scarce and is less compelling. This copy of Belfort's unique memoir is Fine/Fine, binding clean and tight, no marks, DJ unchipped and unclipped, corners unbumped, with $25.00 price tag. First edition, first printing, with number line starting at "1." A handsome, collectable copy of this unusual story of an "American entrepreneurial icon." Two nearly identical copies available, each Fine/Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 150310

About this title

Synopsis:

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 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 for him 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...

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. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent.
Reputedly the prototype for the film Boiler Room, Stratton Oakmont turned microcap investing into a wickedly lucrative game as Belfort’s hyped-up, coked-out brokers browbeat clients into stock buys that were guaranteed to earn obscene profits–for the house. But an insatiable appetite for debauchery, questionable tactics, and a fateful partnership with a breakout shoe designer named Steve Madden would land Belfort on both sides of the law and into a harrowing darkness all his own.

From the stormy relationship Belfort shared with his model-wife as they ran a madcap household that included two young children, a full-time staff of twenty-two, a pair of bodyguards, and hidden cameras everywhere—even as the SEC and FBI zeroed in on them—to the unbridled hedonism of his office life, here is the extraordinary story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down...
