We will review the state of the art in post-Newtonian gravity, and its significant advancement via the EFT of spinning gravitating objects. First, we will introduce the concept of a tower of EFTs for the binary inspiral problem. We will then go over the intricate formulation of the EFT of spinning objects. Finally, we will present some advanced recent results accomplished within this framework.
