9780340953754: The Wolf of Wall Street: How Money Destroyed a Wall Street Superman

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...

About the Author:

Jordan Belfort served twenty-two months in prison, spent one month in rehab, and is currently living in Los Angeles, California.

From AudioFile:

Jordan Belfort, a notable businessman, became a convict before he was 30 years old. His story is absurd and hilarious, heartfelt and emotional, and above all, a truthful look back at his bizarre journey. Narrator Bobby Cannavale's thick, firm voice is fitting for Belfort. Strong and unwavering, Cannavale delivers the material at a steady pace that brings the story to life. Cannavale does the impossible and becomes Jordan Belfort in a truly remarkable performance. While having Belfort himself assume the role of narrator for his memoir would have proved more interesting, offering a firsthand perspective of the events in question, Cannavale is the next best thing and might just be more believable as Belfort than Belfort himself.
