What are some good resources on interpersonal communication that I can direct people to that they can read on their own time?

Much of what I know about communication I picked up a bit more informally, through experience or through talking to others, so I find myself a bit lacking in giving recommendations that others can read on their own time. Particular topics of interest: recognizing and articulating one's own emotions, "I"-statements, avoiding ultimatums, active listening, feminist and social justice based perspectives.
On a related note, there was a link somewhere on the blue or the green (I think it was on a MeSite at least?) this past summer about affection styles (not attachment styles), but my search skills are failing me. There was a link to a pop psychology quiz, but also a link to some more explanatory information. Does anyone else remember this, and could help me find the links again? Thanks!
