Excited random walk is a process on Z^d which behaves like a regular balanced random walk when it reaches a vertex it already visited, but when it reaches a new vertex it has a drift to the right. We shall review a number of new results about this process. Some of the results are joint work with Gidi Amir and Itai Benjamini.
