I ve been in collecting books for years, but just now started sending my books to CGC, I was wondering what kind of defects if any, would give a book a Quilified grade?

Ok, subject to amendment by other, ahem, more enlightened board members:

 

A Qualified grade is generally given to high grade book ( VF - NM) which has ONE specific glaring defect, e.g., a 2" tear to the back cover, cover detached at the top staple only, coupon cut out, name written on cover in ink, etc., which prevents it from obtaining that high grade. A Q grade recognizes that without that one defect, the book is a beauty.

 

Although, there are exceptions to every rule as we have seen Qualified grades given to books as low as 3.5 (see Hulk #181 census - presumedly for a missing Marvel Value Stamp)

Cut-out Marvel Value Stamps and signatures seem to be the most common Qualified grades, it seems to me. CGC won't verify the authenticity of anybody's signature (and who can blame them) unless it's part of their yellow-label Signature Series.

What about if the comic was manufactured with only 1 staple?  Is that get a Qualified grade?

correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think a comic with one staple is considered qualified, you just won't get a high grade like a 9.6. I think the highest you can get is a 9.2.
