and then the author does a few completely ridiculous algebraic manipulations like taking a 2nd derivative of a product and putting it back into the form d^2/dx^2[2x*d/dx[e^(x)]+d/dx[2x]*e^(x)], and then went into factoring it to get what he needed, just some ridiculous manipulations when if he used different examples the point would still be made without unnecessary algebra
and as usual its completely overpriced for how mediocre it is
