NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
By day he made hundreds of thousands of greenbacks a minute. by way of evening he spent it as quickly as he may, on medicines, intercourse, and overseas globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 resort tab, to the spouse and youngsters ready at domestic, and the fast-talking, hard-partying younger stockbrokers who known as him king and did his bidding, the following, in his personal inimitable phrases, is the tale of the ill-fated genius they known as . . .
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET
In the Nineties Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the infamous funding company Stratton Oakmont, grew to become one of many so much notorious names in American finance: an excellent, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild trip out of the canyons of Wall highway and right into a monstrous workplace on ny. Now, during this mind-blowing and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a narrative of greed, strength, and extra that nobody may invent.
seemingly the prototype for the movie Boiler Room, Stratton Oakmont became microcap making an investment right into a wickedly profitable online game as Belfort’s hyped-up, coked-out agents browbeat consumers into inventory buys that have been bound to earn obscene profits—for the home. yet an insatiable urge for food for debauchery, questionable strategies, and a fateful partnership with a breakout shoe clothier named Steve Madden might land Belfort on either side of the legislations and right into a harrowing darkness all his own.
From the stormy dating Belfort shared together with his model-wife as they ran a madcap family that integrated children, a full-time employees of 22, a couple of bodyguards, and hidden cameras everywhere—even because the SEC and FBI zeroed in on them—to the unbridled hedonism of his place of work existence, this is the extreme tale of a regular man who went from hustling Italian ices at 16 to creating hundreds and hundreds of thousands. till all of it got here crashing down . . .
