In a nutshell

Recommended Posts

This is a popular expression which means you're going to say what you have to say in the shortest possible way, leaving all the details out. You can also say 'to make a long story short':

In a nutshell, it all worked out beuatifully.

To make a long story short, the meeting disintegrated into chaos.

I don't know the phrase 'To make a long story short' before. Nice. 

I have a doubt. In your sentence 'it all worked out... ' what's the meaning for all? what's the word class?
