Anna Faris has advice for you. And it's great advice, because she's been through it all, and she wants to tell you what she's learned. 

After surviving an awkward childhood (when she bribed the fastest boy in the third grade with ice cream), navigating dating and marriage in Hollywood, and building a podcast around romantic advice, Anna has plenty of lessons to share: Advocate for yourself. Know that there are wonderful people out there and that a great relationship is possible. And, finally, don't date magicians.

Her comic memoir, Unqualified, shares Anna's candid, sympathetic, and entertaining stories of love lost and won. Part memoir—including stories about being “the short girl” in elementary school, finding and keeping female friends, and dealing with the pressures of the entertainment industry and parenthood—part humorous, unflinching advice from her hit podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified, the book will reveal Anna's unique take on how to master the bizarre, chaotic, and ultimately rewarding world of love.

Hilarious, honest, and useful, Unqualified is the book Anna's fans have been waiting for.

Anna Faris is an actress, producer, and top-rated podcaster. Her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified, averages 4 million downloads a month. Faris currently stars on the CBS hit comedy Mom and has had memorable roles on Entourage and Friends. She most recently starred in MGM/Pantelion Films' remake of Overboard alongside Eugenio Derbez. Faris produced and starred in The House Bunny and What's Your Number and her additional films include the Scary Movie franchise, Lost in Translation, The Dictator, Observe and Report, Brokeback Mountain, Just Friends, Smiley Face, Keanu, and the Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs franchise.  A native of Washington State, she lives in Los Angeles with her family.


REVIEW:
I liked Anna Faris more before reading her book.
Then I realized, it was the characters she played that I liked, not her specifcally. I didn't know her. I liked the ditzy, funny women she portrayed.
Reading her book, she is smart but also a very serious person. I felt like we were polar opposites in so many ways. She's a little uptight and I'm so laid back. Still, I respect her and what I learned about her.
There was a couple of chapters I completely skipped by though.
I didn't want to read other people's thoughts and opinions from her podcast or Facebook. I just wanted to read what she had to say. When she was writing to the reader, she was brilliant! When she got sidetracked onto her audience, it was boring!!!
Glad I picked this up for a bargain. I might have been upset if I paid a small fortune.


2/5

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
