Pruning a rubber plant

Pruning a rubber plant

I have a spindly little India rubber plant, about two feet tall. The leaves are nice and healthy but it seems like it won't be long before they're too heavy for the stem. I started looking on line for information on pruning them, but it's all conflicting! One says to trim off the top of the stem, another says to trim off the lower leaves and new shoots will grow there. Do you do both? Neither? My handy-dandy Ortho Houseplants book just says to prune it. Gee, thanks for that detailed information.
