Building a Digital Human presents a book-length tutorial that starts with a cube and ends with a fully-articulated male model. Reference images on CD in addition to clear writing with frequent explanations of why the author chooses to model with various sub-division modeling techniques is extraordinarily helpful.
To be honest, beginners will probably not walk away from this book with the ability to model any human. Intermediate-to-advanced users may find nuances that will be missed by those new to polygon and sub-d modeling. I've found that my investment of time and patience has increased my general modeling ability more than I can had thought possible, even though it may be a while until I can recreate all of the steps that the author has taken while modeling my own characters. I heartily recommend this book.
Building a Digital Human is non-software specific.
