Isn't it outdated by now?

Carlyle's The French Revolution, A History
Aulard's The French Revolution: a political history
Lefebvre's The French Revolution
Cobban's The Social Interpretation of the French Revolution
Doyle's Oxford History of the French Revolution
Furets's Revolutionary France 1770-1880 (it's more a textbook than a non-fiction book, but hey)

There was also a 2 part french movie I'd recommend that gave a fairly even handed approach to the events.
La Révolution française: les Années lumière
La Révolution française: les Années terribles
