Gravitational Wave Astronomy is an emergent area that aims at discovery in astrophysics and cosmology through the detection and study of gravitational radiation from different astrophysical objects. In this talk I will review the basics of Gravitational Wave Astronomy and will describe some of the most exciting discoveries that low-frequency gravitational wave detectors like LISA can achieve.
