    This is real simple....if you've got some time on your hands

    There are several quotes attributed Jacob Chanowski splashed all over the web, but I can't find any evidence that the name belongs to a person who actually existed.

    What do you think?

    The name is mostly credited as a 20th century author and there is no record of him at the Oxford (National Copyright) Library, so I'd guess that it is a pseudonym or pandonym (?).

    Ask xico since he's using Chanowski in his signature.

    This is a quote by Bronowski that is the same that is credited to Chanowski:
    Chanowski and Bronowski appear to be the same person.


    This is Jacob Chanowski, better know in real life as Jacob Bronowski

    you ARE the man Jack (y)
    that's what i concluded, as well, but i had no proof

    so....was this your search string?
    how do we go about finding out if Chanowski is a psuedonmym?
