One of my friends has recently explained the following. Would you please make this more tangible or clear? especially I am wonder if the bold parts could be correct.
For instance, "the two most recent of his previous books" or "the latest two of his previous books" would be clear. -·-·-
You might wonder why I put the word "two" before "most recent", but after "the latest". The answer is simply that the phrases seem to sound better (more natural) that way, just because of the rhythm of the syllables.
