Book Review, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ by Jordan Belfort

Wow, what a madman. Here’s an idiot’s guide to this book:

Short guy gets job at Rothschilds… takes drugs

Fast forward a few years, short guy is chief of a stockbroking firm… takes lots of drugs

Short guy is a maniac, becomes a crook through fraud and money laundering… takes lots and lots of drugs

Everything caves in, short guy gets off drugs, goes to prison.

Jordan Belfort epitomises the work hard play hard type. However he played too hard, which affected his decision making and the lives of all around him. He is also a criminal. The book is badly written, and Belfort comes across badly – he is extremely self-congratulatory throughout and to be honest is a bit of a prat.

Saying that, it was a great ride to be taken on!

5/10
