What is the process for getting a book published?

I have a friend in Philadelphia who is working on a novel piece by piece, and is getting ever closer to finishing. He has no experience with getting published, does not know who to talk to, etc. but is probably not interested in self-publishing and self-distribution.
Recommendations for an agent, or the general procedure for sending out manuscripts to publishers, ideas regarding editing, etc. are all appreciated, especially any contacts within the Philadelphia metro area. Thanks in advance!
