Short block Vs Long block

I was just wondering what the difference was between them. My brothers truck had some engine problems and ford approved short block plus heads(parts 10 days away). But not a long block which was only a day away. What else would be on the long block to make them not want to just go that route. The mechanic was trying to get him a long block.
