The Wolf of Wall Street by Jordan BelfortBy 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 sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids waiting 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 that no one could invent.
Reputedly the prototype for the film Boiler Room, Stratton Oakmont turned microcap investing into a wickedly lucrative game as Belfort’s hyped-up, coked-out brokers browbeat clients into stock buys that were guaranteed to earn obscene profits—for the house. But an insatiable appetite for debauchery, questionable tactics, and a fateful partnership with a breakout shoe designer named Steve Madden would land Belfort on both sides of the law and into a harrowing darkness all his own.
From the stormy relationship Belfort shared with his model-wife as they ran a madcap household that included two young children, a full-time staff of twenty-two, a pair of bodyguards, and hidden cameras everywhere—even as the SEC and FBI zeroed in on them—to the unbridled hedonism of his office life, here is the extraordinary story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down . . .

Martin Scorsese's Wolf of Wall Street was a box office sensation, with Leonardo DiCaprio giving yet another outstanding performance as the crooked stockbroker, Jordan Belfort. However, you could argue it was Margot Robbie 's star-turning role as his wife that stole the show. Although she fully nailed it as the uber-glamorous Naomi Lapaglia, Robbie has opened up about how playing the character didn't come easily - particularly when it came to filming that sex scene with Hollywood heavyweight DiCaprio. For an article published by Porter magazine, which hailed the actress 'The New Queen of Hollywood', Robbie recalled the provocative shot, describing it as 'weird' and 'embarrassing'. For those of you who haven't seen the movie, the scene sees Robbie seducing DiCaprio in Basic Instinct fashion, touching herself and calling his character 'Daddy'.
