After seeing the film ( https://thatkitchendrawer.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/money-sex-drugs-and-more-money/ ) I very much fancied reading the book. One because I really enjoyed the book and though I tend to like to read the book before the film I have read a few books because of the films. Also two was wondering whether reading the book would give me a better understanding of the stock market – the answer to that question is no. However I did really enjoy the book. Was interesting to read about someone losing control with drugs but who had lots of money so didn’t end up homeless, in debit etc etc etc which is the usual stories you here about. He still reached rock bottom but did it while still having millions of dollars. Just goes to show money isn’t everything.
