    there is an alternative way:\[\begin{align} 2x^3-3x+1&=x(2x^2-3)+1\\ &=x(2x^2-3)-(2x^2-3)+(2x^2-3)+1\\ &=(x-1)(2x^2-3)+2x^2-3+1\\ &=(x-1)(2x^2-3)+2x^2-2\\ &=(x-1)(2x^2-3)+2(x^2-1)\\ &=(x-1)(2x^2-3)+2(x-1)(x+1)\\ &=(x-1)(2x^2-3+2(x+1))\\ &=(x-1)(2x^2-3+2x+2)\\ &=(x-1)(2x^2+2x-1) \end{align}\]

    this is all to see where 2x^3-3x+1>0
