This article presents a whirlwind tour of some results surrounding the Koebe-Andre'ev-Thurston Theorem, Bill Thurston's seminal circle packing theorem that appears in Chapter 13 of The Geometry and Topology of Three-Manifolds. It will appear as a chapter in the volume: In the tradition of Thurston: geometry and topology (ed. K. Ohshika and A. Papadopoulos), Springer, 2020.
