[Samba] Making shares invisible to unauthorized users

Is there a simple way to set up Samba so that users ONLY see the shares that 
belong to them? 

I'm not talking about the user's HOME directory. But lets say I have 60 
shares in my smb.conf file. To make it less confusing for users when they access 
the Samba server from Windows, I want the users to ONLY see the shares that 
belong to them. 

So, I want to set up each share so that it is only readable and writeable by 
a single user. And so that only that user can see the share. What are the key 
settings to achieve this kind of "visibility and access control"? 

I have figured out most of my Samba issues on my own, but I have a deadline 
today to get this issue resolved and I would appreciate hearing from someone 
who knows the solution. 

Thanks in advance.
