A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "This autobiographical memoir was a fascinatingly narcissistic read. One of those stories where you're continually vaguely offended yet enthralled. I really could not believe that a person could do so many depraved things and still retain a measure of professional respect. It goes to show exactly how much unlimited funds can buy. Of course it ends with a redemption and lesson learned. I couldn't help but admire the author, Jordan Belfort. He is an amazing salesperson, a natural talent. He taught himself writing by studying the writing style of other writers he admired. And then he proceeded to write his experiences into a readable book form. These days he makes his money from his books, speaking engagements and selling his sales training online. Despite large fine and restitution payments, he remains very wealthy, and I expect he will be able to buy his way out of any further bad behaviour, should he fall from his current honest and sober path. A must read if you want to know what it was like to be a stockbroker during the cocaine fuelled frenzy of the Great Stock Market Bubble."
