Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Leonardo Dicaprio (The Great Gatsby, The Aviator), Matthew McConaughey (Mud, Magic Mike), Jonah Hill (Moneyball), Jean Dujardin (The Artist), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights, Zero Dark Thirty) and Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous), and adapted for the screen by Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire). "What separates Jordan's story from others like it, is the brutal honesty." - Leonardo DiCaprio.
Stock market multimillionaire at 26, federal convict at 36, he partied like a rock star, lived like a king, and barely survived his rise and fall as an American entrepreneurial icon. By 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. 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.

Entertaining, enlightening but a bit long winded

I enjoyed the account of Belfort's life, the reader does a great job bringing it to life (although some of the voices are a bit much). The story does drag on a bit in parts, but overall very good commute listen.

Jordan Belfort and his 'Plausible Deniability'

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this audiobook, particularly as the film, 'The Wolf of Wall Street' glamourises Jordan Belfort's story. The autobiography is worth listening to for the following reasons: it is brutally honest and yet funny; it is an education in greed, yes, but also in just how financial manipulation and greed was practised; it is a compelling true story, wonderfully told.

What other book might you compare The Wolf of Wall Street to, and why?

The story reminds me of the story in the film 'Goodfellas' which was based on the book by Henry Hill called ‘Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family’. This was also a story about financial ascent, descent and financial (and other forms of) corruption.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed the scene in which Jordan Belfort comes to London to meet his British elderly aunt, who calls him 'love' and who agrees to become involved in one of his financial scams. This part of the story is wonderfully told.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You cannot top the title of the film as 'The Wolf of Wall Street' but I would tag it with Jordan Belfort's favourite phrase, 'Plausible Deniability'.

Any additional comments?

Eric Meyers is to be congratulated for his wonderful narration. I really hope that Audible record Belfort's second book, 'Chasing The Wolf of Wallstreet' and that Eric Meyers is chosen to narrate this.

Narration is Brilliant

Where does The Wolf of Wall Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a very engaging story but the narration makes it even more so. However, some of the scenarios are rather lengthy, unnecessarily so in my opinion, and therefore my concentration started to wander in some places.

What other book might you compare The Wolf of Wall Street to, and why?

I would have liked to have been able to compare it with Bonfire of the Vanities but, sadly, this book does not appear to be on audible. I did have the book once but it seems to be missing now, unfortunately.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

Eric Meyer seems to live this tale. So much so, he could have been the author! I shall be looking for other books he has narrated.

Way too long..

No doubt that this is an amazing story, but it is written with far too much detail on insignificant moments. Very self indulgent and at times difficult to want to continue.

Would have been better at half the length but if the Belfort story interests you, it's still worth a read.

If you're not sure, don't bother and just watch the movie. You won't miss anything.
