More incredible true stories of fortunes, schemes, parties and prison from the infamous Wall Street trader following his release from prison.
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.

Comments about Catching the Wolf of Wall Street:
If you read the first book, then this book will be disappointing, if you didn't read the first book then this will be confusing, the first book, WOLF OF WALL STREET is a much better read.
