I just finished reading the “The Wolf of Wall Street” by Jordan Belfort. It’s a good read and a book which is hard to put down. It is the story of Jordan Belfort’s rise in the stock market world and dramatic fall as he battles an addiction to drugs.

You won’t learn much about Wall Street or how he was able to make so much money, but he does have some great, but sad stories about the people in the industry and what he did while he was high on drugs. He was lucky not to have killed anyone and ended up only having to spend 22 months in prison.

It looks like a sequel will be out next year and the cover says that the book will be made into a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio with Martin Scorsese directing it. I thought there were laws against convicted felons profiting from their crimes by writing books about their misdeeds.
