Book Description

In the 1990s Jordan Belfort became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper. He was THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, whose life of greed, power and excess was so outrageous it could only be true; no one could make this up! But the day Jordan was arrested and taken away in handcuffs was not the end of the madness.

Catching the Wolf of Wall Street tells of what happened next. After getting out of jail on $10 million bail he had to choose whether to plead guilty and act as a government witness or fight the charges and see his wife be charged as well. he cooperated.

With his trademark brash, brazen and thoroughly unputdownable storytelling, Jordan details more incredible true tales of fortunes made and lost, money-making schemes, parties, sex, drugs, marriage, divorce and prison.


'What separates Jordan's story from others like it, is the brutal honesty.' - Leonardo DiCaprio

'Raw and frequently hilarious.' - The New York Times

'Reads like a cross between Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities and Scorsese's Goodfellas ... Laugh-out funny.' - The Sunday Times

More About the Author

Jordan Belfort was born in Queens, New York. He hustled ices to put himself through college showing early entrepreneurial flair.

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.

Where the Wolf of Wall Street covers Jordan's fall from grace, this book covers his rise to power as well as what happened after he got caught. All the questions raised in the Wolf of Wall Street are covered here and, told in Jordan's fast paced and very readable style, this is hard to put down. I would definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars CATCHING THE WOLF 11 Feb. 2014
By Jet Lagged TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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).

3.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable but flawed 6 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sometimes felt like I was listening to the kid who lied at school to get friends. Would love to read the other side of story, OCD's.

Also, if you have read the first book, there is a lot of overlap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read 27 Aug. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book after I have watched the excellent movie and this book is quite entertaining as well. The story starts after Jordan Belford already got caught and where he started to cooperate with the authorities. As the reader, you witness the interrogations and you learn a lot about Jordan Belfort’s past as well as the establishment of Stratton Oakmont and his private life with the marriage to the “Duchess” in particular. Obviously, this is Jordan Belfort we are talking about here and one can never be sure how accurate and truthful his version of story might be.
The few parts which annoyed me were that you could get the impression that drug abuse might be something cool and he constantly raves about his lavish lifestyle which becomes tedious after a while especially since we all know where this money was coming from.
Other than that he comes across as a nice guy and you have to constantly remind yourself what kind of crimes he committed purely out of greed, otherwise you could become quite sympathetic with this him as you read along, particularly when he describes the suffering of his children towards the end of the book. At some points, even he seems to be surprised about the two tiered justice system where people with money are clearly treated differently.
The story finishes with him being sentenced and his (quite good) life in prison.
All in all I can recommend this book.

This is more about the legal case that got Jordan Belfort to trial. What is missing is the hardship that the people he defrauded and deceived went through, what's also missing is the fact that he ratted out on his friends to reduce his term, such actions would have you as a marked man looking over his shoulder all the time. But still he is again a successful businessman, he should have been stripped of any right to be rich again.

I will never work out the American justice system. Just recently a UK worker at Lloyd's Bank got 2 years for stealing I think £500k from customers accts , you can guarantee that that person will never work again. And here we have Belfort making money on the story of his gregarious life and heinous crimes. God Bless America.

I'm glad I read this book, I certainly don't idolise the guy but one day I hope Belfort gets the come uppance he deserves.

Corruption and excess in everything. How this guy is still alive beats me, but what a life. He had it all, then he got caught. A modern tale of what is wrong with the capitalist system. It was people like this who caused the last recession. But even so it is a compelling and enjoyable read with pathos and comedy. I would definately want to party with Jordan Belfort.
