  • Belfort, Jordan. Catching the Wolf of Wall Street. New York, NY: Bantam, 2009. Print. "The 'real' Wolf of Wall Street." YouTube. YouTube, 23 May 2013. Web. 25 Nov. 2013.

    In the 1990s Jordan Belfort became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper. He was The Wolf of Wall Street, whose life of greed, power and excess was so outrageous it could only be true: no one could make this up! But the day Jordan was arrested and taken away in handcuffs was not the end of the madness. Catching the Wolf of Wall Street tells of what happened next. After getting out of jail on $10 million bail he had to choose whether to plead guilty and act as a government witness or fight the charges and see his wife be charged as well. He cooperated. With his trademark brash, brazen and thoroughly unputdownable storytelling, Jordan details more incredible true tales of fortunes made and lost, money-making schemes, parties, sex, drugs, marriage, divorce and prison.

  • Read what happened next in the follow-up to the bestselling The Wolf of Wall Street, now a major motion picture directed by MARTIN SCORSESE, starring LEONARDO DICAPRIO, MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY, JONAH HILL, JEAN DUJARDIN, KYLE CHANDLER and JOANNA LUMLEY.

PRAISE FOR THE WOLF OF WALL STREET 'What separates Jordan's story from others like it, is the brutal honesty.'- Leonardo DiCaprio 'Raw and frequently hilarious.' - The New York Times 'Reads like a cross between Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities and Scorsese's Goodfellas ...Laugh-out funny.' - The Sunday Times

    It is always interesting to see how the other half lives, and to hear their powerful story in person but for those who miss his live event, you can catch a glimpse through his bestselling memoirs The Wolf of Wall Street and Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, and of course through the motion picture.

Catching the wolf of Wall Street

Catching the Wolf of Wall Street: More Incredible True Stories of Fortunes, Schemes, Parties, and Prison is the most elegant of sequels. George Clooney fought Brad Pitt for the film rights to both books and won; Martin Scorsese was hired as director. Such hot enthusiasm was predictable. Belfort, described by his lawyer in the book as 'the poster child for small-stock fraud', is intelligent and an unflinching writer. But the voice in which he wrote Wolf - manic, adolescent, in itself a spree - has changed; Catching is the work of a man who understands the consequences of his actions.
