Personally, I did not like this book. But the movie was great.

For a book that’s supposed to be a mea culpa, Belfort has very little to say about the investors that Belfort and his brokers hurt. Early in the book, he claims that Stratton Oakmount targeted only wealthy, qualified investors; that claim serves both to explain how Belfort eluded the Securities and Exchange Commission for so long and makes the reader less sympathetic to the investors, who presumably knew they were getting involved with high-risk stock and could afford their losses. Later in the book, Belfort admits that his clients were not all so well-to-do. Either way, the characters of his victims are unexplored. http://www.forbes.com/2007/10/10/book-review-belfort-oped-cz_mm_1010belfort.html

Loved it! Can't wait to see the movie. Would like to read his next book "Catching the Wolf of Wall Street".

a good book mainly talks about his escapades while he was rich, nothing on specifics of the company, funny stories, looking forward to the movie

Too long - rambles on about personal and drug escapades. Very little on how he built Stratton or what motivated him to do the things he did. Could have been written better and more informative.
