By day he made hundreds of thousands of greenbacks a minute. via evening he spent it as quick as he might, on medicines, intercourse, and foreign globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 inn 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 referred to as . . .
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET
In the Nineties Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the infamous funding company Stratton Oakmont, turned some of the most notorious names in American finance: a super, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild trip out of the canyons of Wall road and right into a gigantic place of work on big apple.

From the stormy courting Belfort shared together with his model-wife as they ran a madcap family that incorporated young ones, 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 workplace existence, this is the intense tale of a regular man who went from hustling Italian ices at 16 to creating hundreds and hundreds of hundreds of thousands. until eventually all of it got here crashing down . . .
