Resources for improving communication skills

Can anybody recommend a book that will teach me how to be assertive without sounding bitchy? Or, maybe it's a self-esteem issue that I'm dealing with. I'd like to communicate better.

It's taken me a long time to think of how to even frame this question, or what my issue is, really. I've decided I have a deficit in my social skills, in that I don't know how I come across to others, and I lack tact. I'd love some recommended reading to heighten my awareness and give me tools for effective communication.
I'm 32/f and I get along quite well with people, except I think I sometimes suffer for it.
Other resources and anecdata beyond book recos also welcome and appreciated.
