With a score of this type, lower is better, because that would mean the estimates differed from the actual preference values by less.

That leaves books 104, 105, and 106 as possible recommendations. 0 for item 104.

Not all Mahout-based recommenders will look like this—some will employ different components with different relationships. But this gives a sense of what’s going on in the example.
