In this astounding account, Wall Street’s notorious bad boy—the original million-dollar-a-week stock chopper—leads us through a drama worthy ofThe Sopranos, from the FBI raid on his estate to the deal he cut to rat out his oldest friends and colleagues to the conscience he eventually found.

Was looking for a redeeming factor the whole time. Nothing. This guy is the worst! He goes on and on about how much he's "changed", as he parades topless models around his house in front his kids. His new career path is a scam too, and responsible for the 2008 crash. This book also comes across as self-indulgent soft porn. Gross.

Quick read. Scary look into what Wall Street has been and could become again. Never before in my life have I read about such a self-absorbed and delusional person. Well written, though.

As you can see from my review, I was a fan of The Woolf of Wall Street. While The Woolf of Wall Street was an entertaining rollercoaster ride of debauchery, Catching The Woolf of Wall Street had nothing worthwhile left to tell.

I know it’s more a story about him rebuilding his life but that’s not a story I’m interested in from Jordan Belfort. If you’re thinking that this book is going to pick up at the same exciting pace where the last one finished, then you’ll be terribly disappointed. However,

This was a disgusting, horrifying book. If this is how people are treated who break the law, then it just encourages more people to break the law. This guy sole hundreds of millions from investors and only did 2 years in prison. a prison without a fence where you could play tennis and pay others to do the chores you were supposed to do while in prison. Being in this industry, I feel people like this should be taken or back and shot. You steal and ruin lives and only get 2 years. Disgraceful.

Easy reading about a self absorbed, selfish man who has no morals or comprehension of ethics.

Truly captures the making and breaking of an ambitious soul!
A realization between the antics of what's worthy and what's priceless.. Simplicity, freedom and peace.. The true humblings of happiness!

Poorly written book by an author who clearly likens himself to Tucker Max.
Kolejne spotkanie z twórczością Belforta! Spotkanie, na które uparcie czekałam, bo – wstyd przyznać - stęskniłam się za gościem. I choć euforia towarzysząca mi przy czytaniu pierwszej części „Wilka…” nieco opadła, było całkiem przyjemnie. Musiało być. Niczego innego się nie spodziewałam.

Od razu zaznaczę, że jeśli ktoś ominął „jedynkę”, to i tak nie będzie miał problemów ze zrozumieniem, o co w książce chodzi. Autor zręcznie przywołuje wydarzenia z pierwszej części dyptyku. Osoby, które są świeżo

I both loved and hated these books. Jordan Belfort starts out the first book talking about how he's a changed man, and all he really wants is for his children to respect him and not make his same mistakes. Then he goes on for about 500 pages describing in some unbelievable detail about the complete insanity that was his life. Amounts of drugs like you wouldn't believe, sex with more women than he could count, and just excess beyond what you could imagine. But what I never heard from him was remo ...more

I cannot say that I like this book. I rated 3/5.
Why did I put an average mark?
In the beginning was very interesting to read about Jordan's cooperation.
The middle part is very boring. Joran always speaks about his children.
No one cares about Jordan Belford's children,rather,he cried like baby.
The most interesting part, happy ending. 2 years and 110m is nothing for Jordan.

I would not recommend to read this book.

I was on the receiving end of the Wolf's (or someone like him with a similar script) solicitation by phone, a cold call in the early 1990's. I instantly knew I was being scammed, played along and finally the guy started screaming at me. It is truly remarkable how gullible folks are. At times I think folks scamed by the Wolf should be issued a dunce's cap and deserved the beating for being so stupid.

I enjoyed this much more than The Wolf of Wall Street. Acting as a prequel and sequel all in one, we finally learn a bit more of the human that is Jordan Belfort. If you want to read how a man finds himself in his position, what it is like to go through the white collar justice system, or how a man on the verge of being torn from his family might think... This is a great book for you.

I thought this book was well written and a wonderful insight into the life of Jordan Belfort. While yes, he did disgusting things and committed unspeakable crimes. I feel that he did redeem himself. I was very happy with this book.

In the acknowledgements to The Wolf of Wall Street, this books predecessor, Jordan Belfort thanks his editor for helping him reduce his 1200 page draft to the 550 page final version.

It appears that this book should be subtitled "Scenes from the cutting room floor".

Repeating himself at every opportunity, Belfort goes into great detail about all events only brushed over in the previous book, and it's immediately clear why his editor felt those details could be deleted. His self-effacing, humorous

One of the best written books published

I've read many books and none have been as enticing and easy to read as this book along with the first book. If you have any interest in becoming wealthy, this is the book to read

So I absolutely LOVED reading The Wolf of Wall Street. Although this is one of the few books that I believe was better as a movie I truly loved the crazy story of the crazy life of the crazy Jordan Belfort. When I picked up this sequel to that amazing piece of literature I had very high expectations, and to be fair, I wasn't let down completely.

Even going through his sentencing and his cooperation with the government Belfort still manages to get himself into terrible situations and the failure

Not as riproaring as the first book but a compelling read anyway. Jordan Belmont's literary style makes reading fun.

Worth a read.

Catching the Wolf of Wall Street:

Much less cynical and vulgar. Much more honest and descriptive. Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, the sequel of the famous autobiography The Wolf of Wall Street by Jordan Belfort is quite different from the first novel.

The Wolf of Wall Street was brutal and shocking, answering the vital question How to spend a billion of dollars on drugs and prostitutes? It described the senseless and corrupted life of a clever man, who us

Everything have an a end, is it now or after few years. Or after few murders, killing or lies it doesn't matter everything have an end "Breaking Bad" - had an end one for all, the film "Bag Of Bones', no the film but the series one for all and now and this story have an end. Probably is based on some true stuff, if I was reading this book I'm sure it will be hard to see the picture, but now I just saw it, it doesn't matter that now I was following somebody's imagination.

The Wolf of Wall Street Part 2 picks up right where the first left off. It tells the tale of what happens after Jordan Belfort gets out of prison. Initially, he is forced to choose whether he wants to cooperate with the trial and plead guilty. or plead innocent and fight the case. He chooses to cooperate, atleast technically, but his harsh personality often shines during his telling of what truly happened during his run of fame.

One of the things I particularly enjoyed about this book was how ho

This book isn't the usual kind of literature that you come across. And might not be the most enticing piece of work in itself but as you go through it, you engulf yourself in Jordern's perspective and then you begin to like it. Even I'm not really sure why I like it so much? Although to most it may come across as a bad reflection of one's own self, I consider it as something from which we must take a lesson from, which clouds my judgement as if to really consider it a valid piece of literature o ...more

So yes - I really liked The Wolf of Wall Street...the sequel not so much !

The book is far less debauched (not that I’m saying debauched is good) and lacks the excitement of Belfort’s first book. Perhaps it’s due to the fact that most of his story was covered in the first book. The follow-up feels almost like a justification from his side – constant rationalization for a wasted life and talent.

The interesting thing for me is that once I finished the book I felt a desperate sadness for his daught

I was stuck between 2 and 3 stars. I liked how he went back and showed more of his personal life and that it picks up where the first book left off. I didn't care for all the PG-13 scenes he described (he sounded like a perv), and I didn't care much for the language. I also didn't care to hear about how much money he had and how much everything he owned cost. I didn't think that pertained to the story. Nor did the fact that he paid people to do his chores in prison and played tennis the whole ti ...more

I only read this because I found the end of The Wolf of Wall Street unsatisfying. After all of the sex, drugs, and thievery, I wanted to hear about how he got caught. This is kind of the story, but nor really since it focuses on everything after Belfort agrees to cooperate. I guess I need to read the FBI's memoir to find out how he was caught.

This wasn't bad but less salacious than the first book. It will be interesting to see how/if the movie treats this material.

Jordan Belfort was undoubtedly a charismatic man with the ability to deceive satan. We all know what he had done in past was fraud but as he mentioned in the book he had no bad intention at first, but after he got hooked on the business he couldn't block away the beamed joyousness that was coming toward him which Indicates how evil business can be, Last but not the least, the concept of this book is brilliant and im really keen to read another sequel, I wish Mr.Belfort the very best in his life.

You see it in jewelry stores all the time: They inflate their price tags and then mark things down right in front of you so you think you're getting a good deal.” I paused again, then: “And all this business about an overorder isn't much different than all those stores you see advertising ‘ going-out-of-business sales.’ Most of them have been advertising the same going-out-of-business sale for the last ten years, and in ten more years they'll still be going out of business!” 3 likes
