#### Quantum Gravity without Relativity

I will review the recent proposal of P. Horava for a consistent theory
of quantum gravity. After introducing the idea of anisotropic scaling
(and its relation to renormalization) with a toy model, I will show how
this idea is implemented in gravitational theories. Once the proposal is
understood, I will discuss the phenomenological implications. My plan is
to make a pedagogical review aimed at anyone interested in quantum gravity.
