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.

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: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
