"Raw and frequently hilarious."--The New York Times
"A rollicking tale of [Jordan Belfort's] rise to riches as head of the infamous boiler room Stratton Oakmont . . . proof that there are indeed second acts in American lives."--Forbes "A cross between Tom Wolfe's The Bonfire of the Vanities and Scorsese's GoodFellas . . . Belfort has the Midas touch."--The Sunday Times (London) "Entertaining as pulp fiction, real as a federal indictment . . . a hell of a read."--Kirkus Reviews
