His first business sent him bankrupt at 24 so he went down to Wall St with $100 in his pocket and ended up building one of the largest brokerages in America - the now infamous Stratton Oakmont. A hard partying lifestyle ended in crash and burn. Ultimately indicted by the federal government, Belfort served twenty-two months in prison, and time in rehab. He's now a highly successful motivational speaker. His story is being made into a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by martin Scorsese. He is currently living in Los Angeles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Picks up where the film left off 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you enjoyed the film then you can think of this book as the sequel to the film showing what happened next. The book title is a bit misleading and doesn't sell it well enough. Yes, there are further details about what happened during the hedonistic days, but more interestingly, it takes the characters further and goes through what happened after it all began to crash down in Jordan's life. A must read for any fans of the first book or film

4.0 out of 5 stars CATCHING THE WOLF 11 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"I read that book from cover to cover - 698 pages in a single day - and I laughed out loud the entire time. I was blown away. Mesmerised. Not only was it the most brilliant book I had ever read but also there was something about the writing style that resonated with my soul...."

So says the Wolf Jordan Belfort, referring to Tom Wolfe's book "The Bonfire of the Vanities".

This "Catching the Wolf of Wall Street" book is the follow-up to his original "The Wolf of Wall Street". There is inevitable duplication with the first book - but enough new material here to keep us interested all over again.

What I find impressive is just how well written this book is. I enjoyed reading it so much that I began to suspect a ghostwriter had been hired to do the job. After all, this guy was not a writer. He was too busy with certain other activities to have any time left for writing.

I would have probably come away with that ghostwriter belief intact - except for what Belfort reveals at the end of the book:-

"... I must have read that book two dozen times, until I knew every word by heart. And then I read it again, to learn grammar. Then I paid my trusty laundry man, Mark the meth dealer ( who happened to be an avid reader), ten cans of tuna to go through the book with a fine-tooth comb and write down every simile and analogy on a separate piece of paper. Then I read it over and over again until I could recite them in my sleep. And before I knew it, a voice popped into my head: my writers voice. It was ironic, glib, obnoxious, self-serving, and often despicable, but, as Tommy explained it, it was funny as all hell."

The "Tommy" he is referring to is Tommy Chong (Of Cheech and Chong fame).

4.0 out of 5 stars Boom and bust 12 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great antedote to the swirling typhoon whipped up in the first installment. The huge ego of JB takes a nose dive just at the point where you have heard enough from him regarding his finer points. Taken together these books give new meaning to the term 'boom and bust' and serve to remind us all that too much of anything is a bad thing..

4.0 out of 5 stars How many a man got rich 14 July 2014
By dyjo45
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I choose this book as it was recommended by amazon after other buys . I took it on a holiday where there was nothing to do but laze around and read. I think anyone in business could relate to Times when if you made the wrong decision you could be led down the road to destruction. Good flowing read... I couldn't put it down...

But are we just rewarding his crime by buying this and I'm left wondering is his remorse actually real. What about the missing millions.
