Jordan Belfort

I met and became friends with Jordan Belfort while at Taft Prison Camp. We played tennis daily and I got to know him well enough for him to ask me to type his book for him while he dictated it to me. We got about 40 pages into it and then I was shipped to another prison to take the drug program.

Jordan was an amazing person, he adapted to prison quite well and for a man who had and lost what he lost to handle himself as well as he did in prison showed me the type of character he had. I myself lost over a million dollars and it devastated me for the first few years of my 12 plus years in prison. But Jordan just seemed to take it all with a grain of salt.

I would highly recommend this upcoming movie about Jordan's life and career to everyone. It could be a learning experience for many about the ups and downs of life and for others it might be a wake-up call to stop or never start such endeavors. And they couldn't have picked a more suitable leading man to play Jordan. He will be fantastic in this role!

YES!

My name is Jenny Gregory. I'm just a sexy 27 yr.old country girl who owns a couple cafe's in TN. I have little time to read so when I do read I make sure the book is dam good! And both of Jordan's books were unbelievable...no really they were hard to believe. I LOVED reading The Wolf of Wall Street and Chasing the Wolf of Wall Street. I originally picked up the books to learn more about wall street but I soon found myself captivated by Jordan's life. The book showed me into the mind of someone bigger then life. He spilled his guts the good the bad and the ugly. He really had to have guts to be so honest in his books. Also for someone so smart he did some really dumb things! If he can make that much money then I know dam well I'm on my way to being one hot rich lady.I CANT WAIT FOR THE MOVIE! Jenny Gregory

Jordan is a narcissist displaying all the traits of a sociopath.

Good people get married provide for their family, and love their partners. Jordan, left his first wife, cheated on his second and physically abused her. The traits of a sociopath are:

-failure or refusal to go by "the rules";

-lack of a genuine guilt and remorse;

-difficulty with impulse control; manipulative behaviors;

-conning and compulsive lying;

-glib, superficial charm and a lack of emotional depth;

-a tendency to get bored easily;

-a tendency toward criminal behavior, and including violent acts.

Jordon says that he is sorry for what he did, but can a sociopath truly know what remorse is. Actions speak louder than words, a leopard never changes his spots. Beware.

Jordan Belfort

This guy breaks just about every securities and drug laws in the US, churns through prostitutes like taking vitamin pills, launders millions of dollars, a lifetime of lies and deceit and with all his money and connections to people in high places he gets less than 2 years in a jail that's more like a holiday camp. While another man gets 1 year in jail for selling bongs on the Internet. What a f*cking joke.

There are no courts of justice, only courts of law. And now he's treated like a celebrity as he trots around the world giving motivational speeches. This is a man who's role models were Gordon Gekko and Richard Gere from Pretty Woman.

And with his money, in jail he had a maid, a cook, a laundry man, a masseuse and just about everything else done for him. I would like to see just where in his life Jordan has ever done an honest days work.

It just goes to show that with good looks, a huge ego, tons of arrogance, lots of money and a massive dose of greed, you really can have it all.

It's people like Jordan that are tearing the fabric of society apart. And while the world drowns in a sea of greed and madness people write "ohh I can't wait for the movie".

Wow, your right, its must have been tough playing tennis in jail.

Smart

If it was that easy, you would do it too! Get off your high horse and stop pretending that you are so morally pure that you would shy away from over $100 million.

I would do it too.

Ya right

If you really read the book it does not go to show if you are greedy and self centered you get it all! It shows that you loose it all. He lost his job, business, wife and much more so what book did you read?

With luck this movie will not get made. To give this crook another minute of attention is committing another crime.

Jordan Belfort is a hero.

He is an innovator who lived a life that most people can only dream about. He also did it by the time he was 25. Even if he hadn't cut any corners he would have been wildly successful. The guy is brilliant. I'd like to see anyone else make a million a week by the age 25 from nothing. He basically started Stratton from an electrial closet at another job. Also, many of the things he was doing weren't major crimes at that point in time. He is basically the reason FINRA exists today. I'd pay to listen to him speak any day and I'll certainly be front and center when the movie releases.
