Catching the Wolf of Wall Street

By Jordan Belfort

This book is sequel to “The Wolf of Wall Street”. I find it quite disappointing in the sense that the storyline does not seem so interesting as compared to the first book.

In this book, Belfort leads us through a drama, from is early rise to power, FBI raid on his estate, his arrest, his deal with a bloodthirsty prosecutor to rat out his oldest friends and colleagues. With his kingdom in ruin, not to mention his marriage, the Wolf faces the great challenge of navigating through the judges and lawyers, hold on to his children and his enraged wife and possibly to salvage his self respect.

  1. Hey dailytools,

    I will have to disrespectfully disagree with you. Whilst I will agree that, perhaps, the sequel does not have the same shock value as the original, I think it offered some very interesting insights.

    I was particularly interested in his early start in the business world. The interview in which he methodically explained how he became involved in the world of sales and later, running his numerous businesses was nothing short of fascinating.

    Understandably, you must take all his comments with a grain of salt, knowing that he, undoubtedly, a great storyteller. Yet, exaggeration and creative recollection considered, I thought it was insightful and captivating.

    I will be waiting in line to get first tickets to the film starring Leonardo DiCaprio set to show in 2011.

  2. Yes you are right Dave. When I read the first book, it is so interesting that I have to finish it within 1-2 days. Because I like it so much, that I have to buy the second book. I have set extremely high expectations of the second book after reading the first one.

    I am also looking forward to the film starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Guess it will be very interesting.
