comment Chern-Simons invariants of 2-bridge knots
Actually, since we are interested in oriented 2-bridge knots we do want it to be $2p$. Equivalence of unoriented 2-bridge knots only requires congruence mod $p$.

Changed $q \mod 2p$ to $-q \mod 2p$.

comment Obtain any 3-manifold from repeating surgeries on knots in $S^3$
I think Lickorish's attachment to the theorem might come from Rolfsen's "Knots and Links." Chapter 9.I is titled "The fundamental theorem of Lickorish and Wallace" and discusses this very topic.

comment Koebe–Andreev–Thurston theorem - where can I find a proof?
There might be a typo here. The relevant sections for Andre'ev's Theorem and circle packings are 13.6 and 13.7. However, if there is a secret chapter 16 of Thurston's notes, I would love to know about it!
