Black holes, regions within which gravity is so intense that even light cannot escape, are amongst the most interesting objects in the known universe. Owing to their nature, they can only be studied via their interactions with other matter. I will briefly review some of the observational methods available for detecting black holes, and what we can hope to learn about them using X-ray observations.
