O Lobo de Wall Street

Editora Planeta do Brasil
172

Entre os mais vendidos da VEJA. Nos anos 1990, Jordan Belfort, o todo-poderoso do famoso banco de investimentos Stratton Oakmont, tornou-se um dos nomes mais conhecidos do mercado financeiro norte-americano. Ele era um brilhante negociador de ações cuja ousadia e truculência lhe garantiram a alcunha, alimentada por ele mesmo, de Lobo de Wall Street. Com talento para fazer milhares de dólares em apenas alguns minutos, nem sempre pelos caminhos éticos ou legais, Jordan Belfort comandava uma gangue de corretores desvairados que ele levou de Wall Street para um escritório imponente em Long Island, onde montou seu quartel-general. Nesta autobiografia impressionante e divertida, o Lobo de Wall Street narra sem meias palavras sua história de ambição, poder e excessos. Uma vida marcada pelo relacionamento tumultuado com sua esposa, com quem morava numa mansão servida por 22 criados, e por aventuras ao redor do mundo com aviões, iates, drogas e mulheres. Até que alguns passos em falso o colocaram frente a frente com a Justiça, ao mesmo tempo em que se perdia no mundo do vício... E tudo começou a desmoronar.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids waiting at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called . . .

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of the canyons of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess that no one could invent.

Reputedly the prototype for the film Boiler Room, Stratton Oakmont turned microcap investing into a wickedly lucrative game as Belfort’s hyped-up, coked-out brokers browbeat clients into stock buys that were guaranteed to earn obscene profits—for the house. But an insatiable appetite for debauchery, questionable tactics, and a fateful partnership with a breakout shoe designer named Steve Madden would land Belfort on both sides of the law and into a harrowing darkness all his own.

From the stormy relationship Belfort shared with his model-wife as they ran a madcap household that included two young children, a full-time staff of twenty-two, a pair of bodyguards, and hidden cameras everywhere—even as the SEC and FBI zeroed in on them—to the unbridled hedonism of his office life, here is the extraordinary story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down . . .

Praise for The Wolf of Wall Street

“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
