"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"
