Catching the Wolf of Wall Street: More Incredible True Stories of Fortunes, Schemes, Parties, and Prison By Jordan Belfort

    If you read the Wolf of Wall Street, you should read Catching the Wolf of Wall Street it is a good read and finishes off the former book. He is just as funny as in his first book but he also tells, in depth, what happened to him in the end and how he had to rat out all his friends, especially how he ended up being wired to catch them. He explains in great detail what made him turn on them and how he finally came through it all as a better person. Kindle This is just as funny as his first book. A amazing prequel. Although it is sometimes repetitive of his first book. Kindle If after reading the wolf of wall street you were interested learning this book helps but contains lots of overlap from original book. Doesn't give a great deal of insight apart from highlighting the fact that while a likeable character Jordan belfort is a scumbag conman at heart who will deceive anyone for money. Kindle To be really honest I hated Jordan in this book. I wanted him to get a huge punishiment. I know he has to pay a grip of cash, but I wanted his life destroyed, like the old man who he robbed in the begining of the book. The story was well written and I couldn't put it down, mostly because I wanted him destroyed. But I know since it was written from a personal stand point that he really wouldn't be. But damn I was hoping. As autobiographical books go, it kept me reading, even if it was presumptuous as heck. It is a good warning to the egosentric of our world, you will eventually get caught. If you loved the movie you will love the book. He goes into way detail than the movie. Kindle I started off reading The Wolf of Wallstreet not even knowing it was a true story. It took me about 100 pages to realize that it was non fiction. I wanted to read it before the movie came out because I love Martin Scorsese.
    After reading it, I really wanted and was excited to see that Belfort wrote a second book.
    This book is on a different path, obviously after he got caught. It's not quite as exciting or shocking as the first, but it really kept me interested the entirety of the book.

    My one complaint is the transition to Kindle involves A LOT of typos and errors. Sentences duplicated, words spelled incorrectly, missing portions when the page is turned Needs a revision. Kindle

Catching the Wolf of Wall Street: More Incredible True Stories of Fortunes, Schemes, Parties, and Prison

    This book contains background on Jordan's early days, his friends, etc.. He again reveals himself as a total scumbag and it is obvious that he has not changed. After ratting out his friends to the police, he rats them out to the general public in order to make some money. And there are truly bizarre things here, like how the author gets morally outraged by a couple of girls dancing topless by his pool, in plain view of his young daughter. This from a man who has wandered around his home in a drugged stupor for most of that child's life, who has ripped off thousands of people, and who lies and betrays and cheats at every opportunity. As in the first book, we find some interesting insights every once in a while. At one point, he says that he was the happiest before he became rich, when his first wife and he were still struggling.

    This book is much better written than the first one, The Wolf of Wall Street. It is obvious that Jordan is a fast learner, if nothing else. It is also a real page turner, which is why I am giving it 4 stars. Kindle Wolf of Wall Street is a memoir of a despicable man which turned my stomach to read. This follow up book is the retelling of his story to the prosecutors with no additional information given. I read these for a book club and wish I hadn’t. Bought them used because I don’t want to support this man with my coins. Kindle In 2011, Mr. Belfort penned Catching the Wolf of Wall Street. This book is the exact polar opposite of its predecessor. In this sequel, Jordan is nearly broke, on the verge of divorce from his second wife, struggling to kick his drug/alcohol problems, and in order to receive a 5K letter and reduced sentence, Jordan must wear a wire, and rat on his former friends. It is moving to see someone who has fallen so far, and so fast attempt to salvage the wreckage of his life, while clinging to his family, and his fortune. Gone are the wild stories of partying, and debauchery at Stratton Oakmont. Here is a man who has hit complete rock bottom. Jordan mocks his own paltry writing skills at the end of the book, yet ironically goes forward to write two excellent bestsellers. Catching the Wolf of Wall Street is highly recommended.especially to those who enjoyed both the book, and movie Wolf of Wall Street. Buy it, and read it today from www.. Kindle I generally like books like these but his whole self and the way he described things almost made me quit reading. I kept on though in hopes that it would feel better, which is did about 2/3 of the way through the book. At the end of the book, I’m kind of pissed he didn’t have a harder time. Having said all of that though, I think it’s the mark of a well written book to make you feel those things. Kindle Most of the book covers Belfort’s life after he was charged and after he agreed to be a cooperating witness (Rat). Belford is a wordsmith who managed to use his talent to feed his greed and the greed of others. He also could afford great lawyers, with great connections, who eventually got him a minimal sentence. What a great country, if you’re rich. The sex chapters in the book we’re probably put in to sell books. Belfort was not the first nor will he be the last of the reprobates who work on Wall Street. He says he’s reformed—only time will tell. Kindle
