The last twenty years have seen a tremendous growth in the quantity, variety, and quality of multi-wavelength astronomical observations of the large-scale structure (LSS). Our ability to observe different properties of the same structures now offers LSS cosmology the ability to become a truly predictive science, by allowing us to self-consistently describe the complex astrophysical processes that pollute our observations together with the underlying simple fundamental physics we hope to extract. In this talk I will review some of the latest results in the quest to understand the growth of structure from weak lensing, the clustering of galaxies, and their cross-correlation with a wide range of alternative probes of the LSS (CMB secondary anisotropies, X-ray maps, the CIB, etc.).
