I will review the paper "Testing General Relativity with GW150914", in which the LIGO-VIRGO collaboration constrains deviations from general relativity based on the gravitational wave event GW150914. This includes analysis of residuals and consistency tests, as well as constraints on the Parameterized Post Newtonian formalism and the Compton wavelength of the graviton. I will summarize the methods used and the results obtained.
