Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring 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 sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, 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, Belfort became one of the most infamous kingpins in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out 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: the tale of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices to making hundreds of millions - until it all came crashing down.
A little disappointed
The narrating makes my ears hurt. I can't believe the narrator does all the voices both make and female. Very annoying. The story drags along at a snail like pace. Not well written. I stopped listening after chapter 4. I'd rather wait for the movie in theaters.
Glad I finished it
Good story, annoyed at first by narrator vocalizing female voices, but got used to it.
