A memoir on the life of Wall Street criminal Jordan Belfort. I watched the movie made by Martin Scorsese and was interested in seeing more of Jordan Belfort. This book is a more detailed version of the movie and unlike the movie has some insight into what happened to Belfort after his conviction and indictment, he argues he is a changed man and now does public speaking to encourage people to do the right things. I recommend this book to those who enjoy biographies especially real life stories on people who build up their lives and then destroy them and finally learn a lesson on why or what happened. The book is a vulgar book with many profanities but is still enjoyable, don't read this book if you are easily offended. I rate this book 4/5 for the biographical aspect and many historical examples we can learn from but obviously the subject matter is more serious. @selfhelpguru of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
