This review is based on lectures on technicolor and extended technicolor presented at the Frascati Spring School in May 2000. I summarize the motivation and structure of this theory of dynamical breaking of electroweak and flavor symmetries. Particular attention is paid to the main phenomenological obstacles to this picture-flavor-changing neutral currents, precision electroweak measurements, and the large top-quark mass-and their proposed resolutions-walking technicolor and topcolor-assisted technicolor. I then discuss the signatures for technicolor and the existing and upcoming searches for them at LEP, the Tevatron Collider, and the Large Hadron Collider. The final section lists some outstanding theoretical questions.
