Description
In this astounding account, Wall Street's notorious bad boy—and original million-dollar-a-month stock chopper—leads us through a drama worthy of The Sopranos, from his early rise to power to the FBI raid on his estate to the endless indictments at his arrest, to his deal with a bloodthirsty prosecutor to rat on his oldest friends and colleagues—while they were doing the same. With his kingdom in ruin, not to mention his marriage, the Wolf faced his greatest challenge yet: how to navigate a gauntlet of judges and lawyers, hold on to his kids and his enraged model wife—and possibly salvage his self-respect. It wasn't going to be easy. In fact, for a man with an unprecedented appetite for excess, it was going to be hell

display_description

In the go-go nineties, Jordan Belfort proved that you didn't need to be on Wall Street to make a fortune in the stock market. His company was good at separating wealthy investors from their cash and spending it as fast as it came in—on hookers, yachts, and drugs. But when Jordan's empire crashed, the man who had become legend was cornered into a five-year stint cooperating with the feds.

In this astounding account, Belfort tells the true story of his spectacular flameout and imprisonment for stock fraud. Wall Street's notorious bad boy leads us through a drama worthy of The Sopranos, from his early rise to power to the FBI raid on his estate to his deal with a bloodthirsty prosecutor to rat out his oldest friends and colleagues. With his kingdom in ruin, not to mention his marriage, the Wolf faced his greatest challenge yet: how to salvage his self-respect.
