In 550 BC, or thereabouts, Buddha stated: “I am the sum total of everything I thought.”


This was divine wisdom that is inspiration for the book’s title, The Truth Is What You Believe. Everything you think is based on a process of thought reaching a conclusion that becomes exactly what you are, as you traverse the complexities and opportunities of your life.


‘The Truth of Religion’ reviews the position of the major religions and influences they have in societies globally today, and how technological/social giants like Google, Facebook and YouTube threaten the loyalty to religion and the values that came with those belief systems.


‘The Truth of Sport’ examines whether money and greed have overtaken human integrity. Does the end justify the means today? The original endeavour of competitive sport started with the purest of ideologies in the Olympics rebirth in Greece in 1896. These earnest human endeavours are in stark contrast to the drug-ridden, corrupt fiasco that is prevalent in many professional sports today. Discover what makes today’s top athletes really tick.


If there are no rules, there is no discernible truth. The section on the ‘Truth of Business’ looks at how creating credibility in every moment of a company’s existence is the key ingredient to success and more importantly how the leader and structure play a part. Commitment to strong ideals is paramount.


Weak people tend to accept and are happy to exist in a world of lies, as it is often easier and cheaper to delude yourself than confront reality head on. How people from all walks of life deal with the adversity of relationship failure and how absolutely critical the truth is, in all your relationships, is uncovered in its barest form in the ‘Truth of Relationships’.


After the first betrayal, you have nothing, so living a true life means you will always have your integrity, a value beyond comparison.

The truth is the god particle that binds the universe for mankind – cherish it always.

Warren Brewin has lived in New Zealand most of his life and has travelled extensively with various business roles as CEO, MD or general manager and also socially with friends and family. On his travels he has met many people from diverse religious beliefs, which along with his thirst for knowledge and extensive research helped spawn his ideas on how today’s social media is impacting the virtues of ancient belief systems which are explored in the Truth of Religion section in this book.

Warren’s considerable business experience in restructuring and turning around the fortunes of failing companies into profitable efficient organisations has provided him with the knowledge to extol the Truth of Business in this book. An absolute commitment to integrity in business is the foundation stone of his enduring success.

Warren was a competitive badminton player, having won Auckland titles and played in England competitively in his early twenties. He also has won many tennis club championships in his earlier life. Warren’s lifelong passion for sports is revealed through the deep insights in this book in the Truth of Sport. He still runs regularly and loves nothing more than a bush run, followed by a swim in the beach where he lives and a cold beer.

Warren is the loving father of two wonderful teenage children, Jack and Renee, and has gone through the pain and difficulty of the breakup of a seventeen-year-old marriage. These experiences led Warren to explore the fundamental basis of different relationships and this provided inspiration for the section on the Truth of Relationships. His passion for politics and global economics is revealed with clear views on Brexit, the rise of nationalism or possible homogenisation of Europe.

We live in a world full of greed, lies, war, corruption and deception but Warren believes the truth is the most important criterium that governs all life’s challenges and opportunities, and by embracing it fully, we can all exist harmoniously while striving for our individual freedoms.

Warren enjoys his current CEO role and loves to spend time with his two awesome children and his amazing new partner, Ronger, and her daughter Sunny. In his spare time, he likes to drive his BMW Turbo E30 too fast, play his guitars and have the odd game of tennis. Warren has an IQ of 135 (BMI certified top 2%) and has exceptional analytical thinking, visual perception and pattern recognition.

    Hi Warren, just wanted to congratulate you on a great book. I read it while I was away skiing - mostly on the plane - and thoroughly enjoyed it. You obviously did a sh*t load of work on it. Well done. I hope you make the NY Times Best Seller list!!! Or get a Pulitzer Prize. All the best.

  • Zach

    An awesome read by a talented writer. Obviously a lot of work and research are done with due diligence. Would recommend to all, especially sports lovers!

  • Mavis

    Great book. Enjoyed it while I was reading it. Lots of information contained and profound insights into incidents happened in this century.

  • A must-read great book in your life

    I have read many books in the past but this book is one of the most impressive books to me.
    People started to look for truth from a long time ago, from nature, from the sky, from the god. In this era, a crazy world created by the internet and new technology, what is truth? Every day from the moment when you open your eye in the morning, all sort of media starts to feed you the so-called truth from various perspective, or purpose.
    It's hard for us to know what truth is, as the name of the book, truth is what you believe. Most the people will no spend time to verify everything they believe, but they take it as truth.
    This book inspires me on the way of thinking and believing. There are so many things in the world which we believed as truth but turns out with a completely different story.
    I absolutely recommend everyone to read this book, it will bring a new view to look at this world, and the truth you believed.

    Again, congratulation Warren, this is a great book.

  • Bryce Strong

    This is an interesting and thought-provoking book which I recommend highly.
    After a successful sports career, and a long and equally successful business career (which continues today) the author has condensed his experience and thought on technology, religion, integrity and sports, personal credibility, and relationship failure causes.
    The book shows a path to follow as one traverses the difficulties and the opportunities of life.

  • Ronger

    This book can make our world a better place to live if there’s no killing, no cheating, no lying, only one thing exists: the truth.

    The author has explored the truth thoroughly in all the areas of our lives: religion, sport, business and relationships. A serious topic has explained in a lively manner.

    Definitely, this book will guide you to live a true life, a life filled with integrity and dignity.

  • Ade

    A well researched exploration into aspects of modern life. How deep does the corruption go, the lies stretch and the media control only you can decide.
    A great fun read,
