Garr Reynolds in his talk on how to give compelling presentations at recommends several books on storytelling:

■ The leader’s guide to storytelling by Stephen Denning
■ Story proof: The science behind the startling power of story by Kendall Haven

These would be good for mastering the art of telling story with visuals/slides.
