Publisher's Summary

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. Her comic memoir and first book, Unqualified, will share Anna's candid, sympathetic, and entertaining stories of love lost and won. Part memoir, part humorous, unflinching advice from her hit podcast Anna Faris Is Unqualified, the book will reveal Anna's unique take on how to navigate the bizarre, chaotic, and worthwhile adventure of finding love.

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

Critic Reviews

“Goofily self-deprecating, casually profane and occasionally raw, earnest and blunt, like Ms. Faris herself.” (The New York Times)

Unqualified is observant, sharp, and startlingly revealing, not only about Faris’s romantic history, but of the broader discrepancies between modern male and female Hollywood stardom writ large.” (The Ringer)

“[Faris] has an engaging voice and is capable of expressing a distinct point of view. She is most affecting in her occasionally bittersweet reflections, as she recounts stories about working in the industry, her anxieties and frustrations about auditioning, and the personal challenges of dealing with aging in Hollywood.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Not What I Thought it Would Be

I have been a fan of Anna Faris for a long time. I believe her to be one of the top comedic actresses of the last 25 years. I purchased this book mistakenly thinking it was an autobiography. It is not.

This book is her take on all things love. I wanted to hear about making Scary Movie and Just Friends, and what it took to produce a movie like The House Bunny. Instead, I got her opinions to hypothetical dating scenarios. My advice is to listen to her podcast. It is the exact same thing and it is free.

Fun and introspective

To start: I have always liked how Anna Farris is in her movies. She always made me laugh with the way she would say things or how she reacted. I like to listen to audiobooks on my to/from work. I was curious about her writing a book, but it was a sealed deal when I saw that she is also the one reading it ( oddly, not many actors/actresses can successfully read their own books). But she succeeded expectations! Like I said, I figured she would be funny...but I was very happy with how introspective she is in this book. Maybe I am taking a look at my life and this came along at a good time. I appreciate how she doesn't make things seem so perfect or so horrible. And she is able to phrase things is ways that I liked. Not all...but many many times. Sometimes you can tell that she is reading...but most of the time it's just great to hear her comments and stories and thoughts like she is just speaking to you over a coffee. She is definitely appreciative of her life...beginning to now...and mostly the lessons she has learned along the way. If you want a fun, easy listen ...this is almost that...but it will make you think about your life as you tag along Anna in her's...kind of like when they sneak vegetables into brownies. Good and fun!

Good if you want someone's ramblings about their love life

She wrote what was genuine but her constant self apology and what seemed like forever about her relationships made it less of an autobiography and more of a diary not even that exciting. The very few interesting elements were when she briefly mentioned work. This was the premise of her story but if youre going for something more than some guy she dated in high school move on.

Love Anna Faris!!

This book is quirky, personal, and like an extended one on one version of her podcast. My only disappointment was that Chris Pratt did not read the foreword he wrote himself. Overall a very entertaining and personal read from a lovely, compassionate person.

it’s like catching up with an old friend

i finished this book in less than 48 hours and without any obligation to do so. that’s saying a lot for a working girl who has a 9 to 5 job and a very packed social life. navigating through this book felt like how it feels to spend a lazy afternoon catching up with an old friend—who you were besties with in high school but only get together with every few years due to your demanding schedules, and who you’re super happy for after she’s shot into super stardom but still hasn’t forgotten her roots—after sobering up from a boozy brunch. the way anna narrates her journey draws you in and makes you feel what she’s feeling, propelling you on a raw, funny, emotional, and genuinely entertaining roller coaster of pure realness. also, this is the first time i’ve ever rated a book (really, search my history), so you know this must be a good one.

Pleasant

An enjoyable respite from the political books I’ve been reading. Don’t doubt Faris has range to do drama as her co-star Janney has, but enjoying her in “Mom”

Heart eyes and tears

Lots of emotions while listening to Anna’s honest account of the relationships in her life. It was inspiring. I’m glad I bought this; I will be relistening.

Anna is funny!

Great book to listen too. Did not want her unqualified wisdom to end. I could relate being a woman in my early forty’s, found it very entertaining.

She has a very nice voice!

If you listen to her pod cast it's pretty much all the same advise and stories. She has a very soothing in intriguing voice.

Limited vocabulary is an understatement

What is it about today’s society that makes everyone want to share their views on everything publicly? Ana Faris has a nice voice but really seems unqualified to write or give advice. It was mildly funny at times however mostly quite dull.
