As for learning proper form and which muscles are worked, I'd recommend this book/DVD combo from the NSCA
As for programs for men, I'd recommend any of the following:
Core Performance by Mark Verstegen
New Rules of Lifting by Cosgrove and Shuler
Men's Health Power Training by Robert Dos Remedios
and when he gets a little experience, I highly suggest
Maximum Strength by Eric Cressey
These books along with Mike Boyles two books (Functional Training for Sport and Designing Strength Training Programs and Facilities) will give put him well on his way to designing his own programs.
Actually, I would and have made the exact same recommendations for women and the only reason I have not also recommended New Rules of Lifting for Women above is because it sounds like he will be put off by the title although, speaking as a man, I can vouch that there is plenty he could take away from that book and program as well.
