Sony Cybershot S500 6MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom For an entry-level digital camera, the Cybershot DSC-S500 incorporates an amazing array of advanced digital features--including 6.0 MP resolution for more detail when you crop photos and make big prints. It's also amazingly simple to use, with point-and-shoot autofocus and autoexposure controls that help you get great shots every time.

One Lens Does It All
The DSC-S500 has a quality Sony lens that adjusts from 32mm wide-angle to 96mm telephoto setting (35mm equivalent), so it's great for room interiors, group shots, and panoramic landscapes as well as close-ups. And 3x optical/2x digital zoom performance lets you zoom in close or pull back for perspective--so you'll be able to cover vacation trips, holiday gatherings and special events with a more interesting range of shots.

A Guy's Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, by Michael R. Crider A man's man trades beer bottles for baby bottles and lives to tell the tale.

In high school, Michael Crider was the jokester, the drummer in a band, the Howie Mandel impersonator. Fast-forward ten years and the funny man has married and become the family man. The Guy's Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the First Year of Fatherhood-Crider's candid, down-to-earth account of his transformation-proves that even without much sleep, he has kept his sense of humor completely intact.

From the moment he hears the unexpected news that the pregnancy test is positive to the end of his son's first year of life, Michael Crider is awed, anxious, and all-too-human. In between these milestones, he endures the aches and pains of his wife's pregnancy (which had a clear impact on his own bodily comfort), swallows his pride when bunny wallpaper replaces his beloved Budweiser mirror, has a short and only partially-appreciated stint as her labor coach on the Big Day, and experiences every one of his son's "firsts" as though they were his own. Honest, informative, hilarious, and heartwarming, The Guy's Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the First Year of Fatherhood is a must-read for all new parents.
