We survey top-quark physics from what has been learned so far at the Tevatron to the searches planned at present and future colliders. We summarize the richness of the measurements and discuss their possible impact on our understanding of the standard model by pointing out their key elements and limitations. We discuss how the top quark may provide a connection to new or unexpected physics. The literature on many of the topics we address is sizeable. We attempt to consolidate the most salient points into a complete, coherent overview.
