Knocking Bolts



By: Christer Idhammar

This book delivers advice on how to become an expert in reliability and maintenance management. IDCON founder and author Christer Idhammar has traveled the world learning and teaching best practices of managing reliability and maintenance.  Those experiences culminate in his autobiography, Knocking Bolts. “This book has been twenty years in the making” stated Mr. Idhammar.  “I’m detailing all the experiences that have led me to where I am today. The reader takes the journey with me to discover what it takes to succeed.”  

The unique aspect of Knocking Bolts is that it is both a memoir and a how-to book.  Each chapter begins with one of Mr. Idhammar’s life stories, from drinking coffee with the Sheik to the Panama Canal, expertly blended with how-to tips to improve your organization.  You’ll laugh out loud at some of the characters and episodes that Christer encountered in six decades of working throughout the world. 

“Christer is very hands on, nobody can break it down like him.”
- Brian Davies, former consultant and plant manager.
