Stock market multimillionaire at 26. Federal convict at 36. The iconic true story of greed, power and excess.

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER AND MAJOR MOVIE SENSATION, DIRECTED BY MARTIN SCORSESE AND STARRING LEONARDO DICAPRIO


‘What separates Jordan’s story from others like it, is the brutal honesty’ 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 sunk a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him for at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, 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 Jordan Belfort 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. It’s an extraordinary story of greed, power and excess no one could invent – and then it all came crashing down.

Reviews

Leonardo DiCaprio
What separates Jordan's story from others like it, is the brutal honesty.
The New York Times
Raw and frequently hilarious.
The Sunday Times
Reads like a cross between Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities and Scorsese's Goodfellas ... Laugh-out-loud funny.
The Sunday Telegraph
an incredible - and strangely compelling - story of shocking greed and power.
The Daily Mail
The wicked Wolf of Wall Street ... Cocaine. Girls. James Bond cars. Billion-dollar deals and jail for fraud ... the outrageous memoirs of the real Gordon Gekko.
The Mail on Sunday
This book reads like The Financial World presented by Ozzy Osbourne ... One reads a book like this for tales of excess, and Belfort certainly delivers, to the point where you long for a night in with Dad's Army and something eggy on a plate.
Rolling Stone
Gleefully crass and terribly sad [but] you actually feel for the guy.
Forbes
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.
Kirkus
A cocky bad boy of finance recalls ... [his] career as a master of his own universe ... A hell of a read.
Publishers Weekly
A memoir that reads like fiction ... [about a] vast amount of sex, drugs and risky physical behavior Belfort managed to survive.
TheStreet.com
For those not completely familiar with Wall Street, this is an important read. Think of it as a tour of the sort of underbelly of the financial market scene, the dark side of which, in some form, is always out there. For those more experienced, this can be, plain and simple, a fun read.
Daily Express
A truly fascinating read.
