    DescriptionBy day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sunk a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, 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 his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called! THE WOLF OF WALL STREET In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, 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. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent--the story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down.

    Author Information
    Jordan Belfort grew up in a middle class family in Queens, NY. He had a gift for earning money from an early age, and put himself through college by saving $20,000 each summer selling Italian ices, while his friends could only save $500. A natural born seller, he moved on to the meat and seafood industry, building a lucrative business, then running it into the ground. He was bankrupt by 26, when he found his way to Wall Street. He built one of the largest brokerages in America, Stratton Oakmont, and with a skyrocketing income so too came a heavy drug dependency and life of hedonism. He was indicted and spent nearly two years in prison. Married and divorced twice, Jordan has two children and lives in Los Angeles.
