Are there still benefits to traditional publishing or should we try self-publishing?

My husband wrote a novel a few years back. It has pretty much sat in our house in digital and a print-out form. I will not comment on how the major publishing houses tend to not come searching in your house for The Next Great American Novel... *ahem* But what SHOULD he do?

I'm probably biased, but I'm also tough and have a least a little experience critiquing creative work and I do think his story is pretty decent. I'm wondering about having him self-publish through Amazon, B&N, and Apple and their various devices. Is it worth it (not necessarily monetarily, but just in a "getting it out there rather than sitting in the house doing nothing") or should he still explore the more traditional routes?
