This presentation describes the case study of writing the book BITE: Recipes for Remarkable Research, a co-created international academic book on research affect. It presents the conceptual metaphor as a significant enabler in flattening the 'normal' power hierarchies that exist within any group of experts, ultimately allowing a far wider group of contributors.
